Mr Sabbagh practice philosophy is that the patient should be as well informed as possible with regard to the procedure, risks and expected outcome. Understanding what surgery can achieve is the key point in the overall satisfaction after surgery. Consultations are never hurried and all patients’ concerns are addressed at the consultation. In some instances, patients are seen for a second pre-operative consultation to make sure there is clear understanding of the procedure and outcome. Strong emphasis is placed on safety and advise given on delaying surgery until all risk factors are controlled such as smoking, weight and medical conditions.
Following surgery, Mr Sabbagh is easily accessible and will address any concerns. All patients are followed up on a regular basis until the optimum outcome of surgery has been achieved.
