This content was provided by Dr. Yates "The opportunity to provide surgical care to patients is a true privilege. Patients and their families place a tremendous amount of faith and trust in their surgeon, and I take that responsibility very seriously. I believe that patients do not simply have a disease that needs treatment; rather, each person has a unique set of clinical and social factors that define the goals and expectations for their surgical care. I strive to understand these factors for each patient and, whenever possible, develop and implement a treatment plan that is congruent with their goals and expectations. I encourage patients to ask questions and be active participants in their clinical decision-making process. It is particularly important to me that each patient fully understands, and has confidence in, the treatment plan that we have developed. Ultimately, it is my goal to ensure that each patient receives with the safest, most effective, and least invasive treatment possible."
