Birmingham Ear ClinicWhat if you need an operation?

He will explain your treatment to you and ensure that you are fully aware of any implications, benefits and potential risks of surgery, that you understand what is involved in the treatment recommended, and that you have a clear grasp of what it is designed to achieve for you.
