For many of us, completing paperwork has become a required, and sometimes
"painful" part of doing business. Prior to your surgery, you
will be asked to read and sign a consent form. The consent form will help
to inform you of many of the possible risks involved with the surgery.
You must be at least 18 years old in order to sign the consent form. If
you are not 18 years of age, a parent of guardian must sign the form for
you. Please keep in mind that if you will be taking any types of pre-medication
prior to surgery (other than antibiotics), you will need to sign the consent
form prior to taking this medication.
Below is a sample of the consent form you will be asked to sign. Please
take the time to read it. Although the information asked is not meant
to alarm you, we realize that it sometimes can do just that. However,
please remember that the incidence of any negative, long-term effects
occurring during or after your surgery, is very, very low. If you have
any questions or concerns about this consent form, you should feel comfortable
discussing them with Dr. Moore.
