The key to a successful outcome from surgery is a clear understanding and expectations about your surgery and the post-operative period. Today, rather than lack of information it is interpretation and understanding that is key.
Your initial consultation brings together information from your GP and other specialists as well as reviewing previous investigations and tests. This guides your examination and further investigation and ultimately the advice Mr Nye gives you about the best course or options for action.
Full and free follow up
After surgery, clear instruction is given about wound care, exercise limits and the need for specific follow up. Postoperative review during your recovery is included in the cost of treatment to allow you the freedom to seek advice without worrying about additional cost.
Mr Nye works closely with Hand Therapists, Oncologists, Physicians and Skin Specialists to ensure the best possible outcome after surgery. He regularly reviews complex cases with colleagues in multidisciplinary clinics and commonly operates in a team environment with other surgeons where a mix of skills is required.
