Le Pr Jean-Charles Le Huec vous recevra dans le cadre de consultations pluridisciplinaires.

Les consultations ont pour but de faire le point avec le patient sur sa pathologie. Elles n’aboutissent pas systématiquement vers une solution chirurgicale et un traitement médical est couramment proposé.

Si une intervention chirurgicale est envisagée, les bénéfices attendus sont exposés. Il en est de même pour les  risques inhérents à cette chirurgie.
