Mr Sethi's approach to Orthopaedic Care
"It is a privilege to treat and care for patients and I realise the huge amount of trust that patients put in their doctors.
When I meet patients I take the time to understand their lifestyles, their needs and their demands. No two patients are the same and therefore each treatment plan needs to carefully formulated in partnership with the patient.
I take a patient centred approach and I ensure that my patients are fully involved in any decision making about their care; my role is to give my patients realistic expectations about different treatment options and then to deliver the treatment plan in the best way possible.
I always try to make sure I'm available to patients to answer questions and alleviating concerns."
