What happens if there is a complication?
All surgical procedures have an inherent risk of complications despite the highest standard of care. The majority of complications, however, are either uncommon ( < 5 % ) or rare ( < 1 % ). It is essential that before you agree to undergo any surgery or treatment that you ask about and fully understand the risks and side-effects of the procedure. Reputable surgeons will always emphasise the risks and side effects and never provide guarantees.
If a complication develops after your surgery,, Mr Inglefield would carry out any further surgery to ameliorate this, at no additional surgical fee to you, the patient. (Hospital and Anaesthetist Fees may apply).
If you are unsatisfied with the results of your surgery after a suitable amount of time has been allowed for healing and maturation of the surgery within the first year, no additional fees will be required.
However, Mr Inglefield is unlikely to waive his fee if any of the following pertain
- The patient ignored the post-operative instructions.
- The patient failed to attend for the agreed postoperative examinations.
- The patient sustained physical injury out of our control.
