My approach to treating patients
We believe in meeting patients' individual needs through comprehensive evaluation and treatment designed to help them achieve an active, pain-free lifestyle. Many musculoskeletal conditions can be treated by non-surgical techniques--surgery is just one treatment option. We combine leading edge techniques with proven traditional methods to provide our patients with the best orthopaedic care possible.
I work to develop a partnership with my patients and especially professional sportsmen which constitute a large part of my activity. On my concern, this begins with listening. And one of the most important things I need to know is how the physical problem affects this patient's life. We develop a dialogue, through which my patients understand the diagnostic process, their own unique problem, their treatment choices, and the recovery process. Patients help to guide and direct the diagnostic and treatment activities.
I believe that knowledgeable patients make the best decisions about their own treatment. That's why I explain every step of the diagnostic process. Next, I want my patients to understand their condition: How it developed and how various treatment approaches can improve or repair the problem. When we consider treatment alternatives, I present a realistic outlook on the results we can achieve. I'll also be frank about any risks that might be involved. If a non-surgical option is available, I'll explain that avenue in depth.
Our purpose is to handle each and every patient visit with care and proficiency. It is also highly important to us that our Doctor/Patient relationship is open and honest. It is my responsibility to make sure patients are well informed about their conditions and the multiple choices of treatment. My professional staff and I will also provide you with patient education materials, (e.g., web sites, pamphlets, and video tapes) that give you added appreciation of your condition and treatment options.
"Notre but est de prendre en charge chaque patient avec soin et compétence. C'est aussi très important pour nous que notre relation Médecin/Patient soit ouverte et honnête. Il est de notre responsabilité de s'assurer que nos patients soient bien informés de leurs options thérapeutiques ainsi que des conditions de ces dernières. Nous avons souhaité vous fournir des outils didactiques afin de vous vous éclairer librement dans vos choix de traitements. Chaque patient et praticien correspondant pourra ainsi aisément retrouver les informations concernant les pathologies du membre supérieur que nous prenons en charge et s'enquérir des dernières publications du Docteur FONTES dans la presse médico-chirurgicale et sportive" Les informations fournies sur notre site sont destinées à améliorer, non à remplacer, la relation qui existe entre le patient (ou visiteur du site) et son médecin.
