Ville Saint-Laurent (Quebec)
H4R 0B7
What should I bring to my first consultation?

Be sure to bring the results of any tests you have already done (X-rays, physician’s instructions).

How long does a consultation take?

A consultation usually takes between 20 and 30 minutes. We make sure that you have had the time you need to get a clear understanding of your condition and our suggested treatment.

Will I need to undergo additional test?

X-rays, ultrasound, nerve conduction study, CT scan or MRI may be required. Some of these tests can be done on our premises.

Will I need surgery?

Many conditions can be treated without a surgical intervention. Surgery could be required in certain cases. However, Dr. Brutus is a specialist in minimally invasive procedures and will always choose the least invasive option to treat your condition, shorten your recovery time, and allow you to resume your regular activities as soon as possible.

 

What type of anaesthetic will be used?

Minimally invasive surgeries are generally performed with a local or regional anesthetic. Dr. Brutus will be able to converse with you during the procedure and you can even observe the surgery on a monitor, if you want to.

What should I bring with me on the day of the procedure?

Bring music or a book or magazine with which to pass the time and relax while waiting for your surgery.

What happens after surgery?

You will be able to leave shortly after the procedure and a brief observation period. We will give you a 24 hour emergency number and our staff will ensure that you have a complete understanding of any postoperative instructions. The day after the procedure, one of our staff will call to see how you are doing.

What happens if there are complications?

Fortunately, complications are extremely rare in our practice, due to our stringent technical standards and extremely safe environment. While it is true that a complication could occur, our attentive and personalized follow-up would allow us to detect and treat it rapidly.

You always have recourse to our emergency telephone number or, for non-urgent questions, you may contact the clinic during regular office hours.

It will be our pleasure to give you an appointment for a consultation and treatment in the next few days.
