Site specific solutions

This section highlights a collection of solutions conceived and performed successfully over a number of years. It can be difficult to take patients through all of the intricacies involved in counseling for a specific procedures and therefore these pages should aid them in coming to a conclusion about which procedure is most relevant for them. While these are a collection of procedures characterised by anatomical location, it should be understood that some of the principles may be applicable across more than one region. This has been covered elsewhere in the site. Due to the graphic nature of these pages, access has been restricted to current patients and healthcare workers only.
