IN THIS VIDEO, PROF MOHAMMED MUHTASEB ENCOURAGES PATIENTS TO DISCUSS THEIR OPTIONS WITH LOVED ONES AND VOICE ANY CONCERNS
“I’d like to speak to my partner before I commit to anything”
Patients will sometimes say at the end of the consultation that they wish to talk to their partners, family members or friends who have had surgical procedures in the past. I think that is absolutely commendable, and is, in my opinion, an essential part of the process of considering whether to proceed to the next step and have a surgical intervention.
Patients are very welcome to bring along family members, friends or anybody else to the consultation. Once they’ve had a chance to discuss their options with family and friends, they are welcome to come along for a further visit to get clarification or ask more questions.
