Diseases

It is common belief throughout the medical world that there are not diseases but patients. This means that any person who suffers from a health problem is considered as a separate entity with his/ her own particular character, the particularities of the environment in which he/ she lives, his / her family, social, professional, personal habits and perceptions.

The same peculiarities should be taken into account when we recommend either a conservative treatment, such as medication, or interventional treatment, such as a surgery.

The description of symptoms, the diagnostic investigation, and the proposed treatment of various diseases of the head and neck, in no case aspire to subject individual needs to a wider scope.

Moreover, in no case should it be a substitute for personal contact between doctor and patient or for the relationship and trust established between them.
