You will have been referred to my practice by your General Practitioner, or hospital physician because you may require investigation by a specialist. That does not always mean you’ll be having surgery but does suggest your situation is a little more complex and requires a thorough exploration of the probable cause. My team and I are committed to providing the highest quality care for you.
Sometimes after a thorough investigation a treatment or surgical intervention may be needed to get you on the path to good health. This can often involve a non-invasive endoscopic procedure or some other procedure that requires a hospital stay. I ensure all my patients understand their precise challenges and the surgical options available to them. Decisions about your health are important and therefore, need to be considered in the context of life quality.
After the decision is made to operate and the surgery is completed you’ll likely have a period of post operative care and recovery. This experience can vary for many and is where my team and I can support you and help you adjust to the changes. We work with you to ensure your recovery and continued care is well informed and based on the most up-to-date evidence available.
