Patient Information

We believe that providing high quality information is of fundamental importance in order to support patients to find out about their problem and to help them make a decision regarding when and how to treat their condition. We promote the five questions of Realistic Medicine:

  • What happens if I do nothing?
  • Is an operation really needed?
  • What are the potential risks and benefits?
  • What are the possible side effects?
  • Are there any simpler, safer or alternate treatment options?
