The contents of this website are for informational purposes only. Opinions expressed should not be construed as medical advice. The particulars of any person’s concerns and circumstances should be discussed with a qualified health care practitioner prior to making any decision which may affect the health and welfare of that person or anyone under his or her care.
Anybody undergoing any medical treatment should consider the following:
- Are you fully confident in the ability and qualification of your healthcare professional or specialist?
- Are you completely informed about the procedure in question, its desired effect as well as its potential for short and long term side-effects? There is no medical procedure without possible side-effects and there is no guaranteed success either.
- Are you prepared to accept all the potential side-effects of the procedure and convinced that the potential benefits outweigh the potential risks?
If in any doubt, we suggest you ask your healthcare practitioner for clarification, find additional information from other sources (such as the medical literature, support-groups, the internet) or get a second opinion from another healthcare professional.
It is your right to be informed.
