Meeting with the surgeon

Meeting with the surgeonThe ethical surgeon uses techniques of Shared Decision-making. which include undertaking a frank discussion of the risks and benefits of surgery with the patient, and then helping the patient to make a decision that is in the patient’s best interests. However, every specialist is somewhat limited by his or her particular training and experience, and will not be equally familiar with all of the operations and procedures available. Patient advocates usually recommend that anyone who is considering elective surgery should find out about the background and reputation of a specialist, and if possible obtain a second opinion before going ahead with an operation.
