When do I meet the surgeon who will be treating and performing any operation?

The first consultation will be with Richard Milner, who would be the surgeon providing all your later care and undertaking the operative procedures. There may occasionally be other surgeons in training present during the consultation and they will be invited to join us only with your express permission before the consultation starts. They will never undertake any procedure themselves. Whilst they are well qualified trainees and close to their appointment as consultants they are there to learn by observation and do not undertake any treatment.
