Consultation: What to Expect
In the clinic when we first meet, I will take a history and examine you. It may be possible to carry out some treatment in the clinic setting, such as an injection into a joint or soft tissue.
A new patient consultation will take approximately
A review appointment will take approximately
Sometimes it may be necessary to carry out further investigations to help plan treatment, such as x-rays, scans or nerve studies and these are discussed and organised by me at our initial consultation and we will review the results together at a subsequent appointment.
If surgery is necessary, we will discuss the procedure and expected outcome in detail, so you know exactly what to expect. I will liaise with you and arrange a date that is mutually convenient and arrange an anaesthetist if a general anaesthetic or sedation is required. Surgery will take place on site at Nuffield Brighton Hospital.
