Dr. Woods,

What I may or may not be concerned about is irrelevant as it has nothing to do with our discussion. This is not the place to discuss Arfy's issues as it has it's own separate and quite lengthy thread. All you have done throughout this thread is inject distractions and irrelevant points. It's all meaningless.

Arfy's case directly contradicts your claims, Dr. Woods. Arfy signed disclaimers before his surgery, as he states in his own words, yet he is still able to talk and I imagine he has talked more than any patient in history. If ever there was a case where a doctor wanted to file a lawsuit against a patient I would imagine it would be this one. According to everything you've said in this thread and others for the past decade there should be nothing to stop this from happening yet here is Arfy, one year later, sans legal muzzle talking about his case. How do you explain this? The evidence is conclusive. You're wrong.

Regarding what you do and do not tell patients before surgery, you have not demonstrated that you explain the problems that can happen with surgery REGARDLESS of whether or not the surgery is "bad".

"I tell patients to beware. FUE may seem less traumatic, but done incorrectly, it will be worse than bad strip....cobblestoning, nasty pits, dents, weird hair angles, severe scalp shock, and extreme global donor decimation ...all done in a few hours.
The doctors and tech teams doing this may be in a bazaar in turkey, or a flash glitzy address in LA, florida, New York etc....makes no difference.

I warn patients of the possible negative consequences of bad surgery. Doctors protect themselves from this. I do not. Because I will not do that to a fellow man"

I have not been asking if you inform patients of the possible complications from surgery in New York, LA or Florida. I have been asking you if you inform your patients of the potential complications that can arise from ANY surgery that YOU perform on them in your clinic. Assuming they are in your office before surgery it is difficult to see how discussing what can happen with other clinics has any bearing on your patients. You seem to have trouble understanding the difference.

I'm done here until I hear back from the Australia Board of Medicine regarding the requirements for what constitutes "informed consent" when dealing with FUE. If you don't have anything to say specifically regarding your points about disclaimers, to support your position, then everything else is irrelevant and useless. Finally, I have not made personal slants toward you in our discussion so please refrain from doing so with me. It is unbecoming of a doctor.
