Mr. Owen is convinced that, as well as surgical expertise, good communication is vital in providing patients with the first class service they deserve. 'Patients should have confidence in the whole team and this requires a down-to-earth approach with a sensible and thorough explanation. Of course, communication is a two-way process and an excellent team is one that listens and responds to patients' concerns.'
Courses offered to GPs
Mr Owen provides regular talks for GPs and Physiotherapists which cover all aspects of hip and knee Surgery.
