You can also rely on the useful information on our website about the risks involved, the alternatives, and realistic expectations of surgeries and treatments. Relying on a team that provides accurate information and advice will make you feel safe and respected. In order to make a sound decision, you will need information regarding the procedure, the risks involved, the alternatives, and consequences, among other issues. Our guiding ethical principle is the Autonomy Principle, which means that you will be able to make a voluntary, unbiased and free decision without being subject to external influences or manipulation. For that purpose, you must be fully aware of the factors involved and the risks you are undertaking and have realistic expectations about the procedure and its outcome.Therefore, you must be well informed.
You have a right to receive, and your Physician is under a duty to give you, full information on the surgery or treatment you will undergo. This right is embodied in the Informed Consent (you can ask for informed consent forms at any time, whether personally or via e-mail). The purpose of informed consents is to inform the patient of all surgical aspects. “Informed Consent” means a patient’s express consent in writing based on proper information received before undergoing a surgical procedure which poses a risk to their health, so that the patient is not only aware of the surgery to be performed and its consequences, but also of all possible complications or unexpected outcomes. A patient may freely withdraw their consent at any time.
>Remember that certain complications and risks inherent in any kind of surgery may be reduced if surgeries are performed in the proper facilities, in compliance with certain rules and requirements. However, there are certain other risks which cannot be prevented and which are present in all kinds of surgical procedures practiced by any surgeon in any country of the world.
At RP Medical Center we go great lengths to give patients information on the risks, benefits and alternatives to each procedure, besides the useful information you may find on our website.
We will provide you with detailed and realistic information on all procedures and the alternatives available, the expected results –to avoid false expectations-, recovery time, and the individual and general risks involved, among other issues. You will also receive information about pre-surgical and post-surgical considerations and care. To make an informed decision on your own, you need to have complete information about the risks and benefits of, and the alternatives to each treatment. Information is extremely important for you to be able to make a decision, to think it over and make a balance. This is why we will always pay special attention to any questions you make on the phone, via e-mail, or during personal interviews.
