I discuss my surgical recommendations very specifically with patients; their thorough understanding is very important in their care. I explain the goals and risks of every procedure, verify their understanding of same, and have open dialogue answering any questions or concerns the patient may have. Each patient then meets with a member of my professional nursing staff, for "pre-operative teaching", thus furthering the patient's understanding of the procedure and their role in it to facilitate their recovery.
