Patient Education

Patient Education is a key component to our success.  We like our patients to understand the procedures they may need to undertake and feel confident that all their questions have been answered prior to any surgery.

As a starting point we would like to recommend that you follow the links below for basic information.  Please note that all educational material provided  below is generic and must be verified with the doctor at your consultation for your specific case. 

We recommend that you compile a list of questions for your doctor prior to your visit so as to make best use of your time with him.
