How do I know if I have chosen the right surgeon? What questions should I be asking?

Posted November 28th, 2016

A: Your choice of a surgeon should depend on many factors. Not all surgeons are good at every procedure. You should choose a sub-specialist trained in the specific procedure you want to have done. Make sure your surgeon is board certified and ask them how long they have been performing the specific procedure. Ask to see before and after photos of previous patients they have operated on and to speak with former patients.

Make sure you are comfortable with your surgeon’s personality, because communication is important before, during and after surgery. All your questions should be answered before surgery. Also, make sure your goals and those of your surgeon are the same regarding the final result you wish to achieve. If your doctor tries to push additional procedures or seems to have an agenda of their own you may want to reconsider your choice of surgeons.
