Dr Parker’s approach to your condition

Before planning any surgery, Dr Parker will take the time necessary to ensure you understand your treatment options and any non-surgical options that are available. After surgery, he will manage your recovery and direct any further treatment necessary.

He will always keep you, your local doctor, and any other relevant specialists or practitioners, informed of your progress, and will engage other subspecialists in your care if required. Once your surgery has been successfully completed, he will explain any further care necessary.
