Welcome to Aamir Zubairy's profile page. One of the most important things I need to know is how your physical problem affects your life. On my part, this begins with listening. We shall develop a dialogue, through which you will understand the diagnostic process, your own unique problem, your treatment choices and the recovery process.
I believe that knowledgeable patients make the best decisions about their own treatment. That's why I explain every step of the diagnostic process.
I want you to understand your condition: How it developed and how various treatment approaches can improve or repair the problem. When we will consider treatment alternatives, I will present to you a realistic outlook on the results that we can achieve. I'll also be frank about any risks that might be involved. If a non-surgical option was available, I'll explain that avenue in depth.
My professional staff and I will also provide you with patient education materials, (e.g., web sites and leaflets) that will give you added appreciation of your condition and treatment options.
