The consultation process involves two very private and confidential office visits with Dr. McCafferty. This process does not have a time limit and Dr. McCafferty and his staff will spend as much time as you require. Every question will be answered.
The first visit will involve a thorough discussion of your concerns and desires with Dr. McCafferty, a complete medical history and pertinent physical examination. Dr. McCafferty and his staff will discuss the alternatives available to satisfy your goals and you will be given reading material on these options. Usually, digital photographs of you will be taken to help Dr. McCafferty formulate a plan.
The second office visit will include critically reviewing your photographs, a possible second examination, and a further discussion of the recommended procedure including risk, benefits, limitations and what to expect during the recovery period. Generally patients have additional questions and all of these will be answered completely during the visit.
The purpose of the consultation process is to provide you with thorough and accurate information necessary to make an informed, intelligent decision. Remember, well meaning friends, magazine articles, and the internet are not adequate sources of information, that is our responsibility.
Surgery is performed in either an office-based surgery center or in the hospital.
Dr. McCafferty has a fully equipped office based surgery center approved by The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF). A fully trained and experienced staff operates this completely private suite.
On the occasion surgery is performed in the hospital, the hospital based outpatient surgery center is also very private. There is a private preoperative holding room, recovery room, and if an over night stay is recommended a private room is arranged.
