The doctor-patient relationship is vital in any situation. Even so, varying relationships will develop starting from the complaint or condition and general situation. The doctor takes charge in life-threatening emergency situations. Once the risk to life has been overcome, the relationship changes with doctors and patients making, and acting on, decisions in dialogue with one another. In contrast, the patient takes charge in cosmetic treatments by telling the doctor what kind of treatment the patient requires.
Regenerative medicine involves treatment where the doctor performs the main tasks of taking the patient’s medical history, performing diagnostics, and briefing the patient on treatment options. The doctor is as dependent on patient cooperation as in any other doctor-patient situation.
In contrast to conventional treatments that involve drugs such as tablets being prescribed at a daily dose for patients to take as closely to doctor’s orders as possible (compliance), regenerative treatment requires the patient to receive a thorough briefing on the healing processes that the patient will be taking an active part in. The treatment outcome will depend on the patient’s cooperation.
We place very high priority on a full briefing on the diagnosis, possible cause of injury to normal tissue in normal and disrupted tissue regulation with the physiological and pathophysiological fundamentals, and classical (pharmacological) and regenerative treatment options. Cooperation and awareness of likely reactions on the part of the patient are more important than in drug-based treatment, as only the patient can keep track of, and support, how his or her strength is developing in the development processes taking place inside the body due to the body’s own natural healing processes.
Supporting treatments for self-perception are also available to help patients in their development and healing, and subsequently preventing recurrence of injury.
We depend on your cooperation. The very positive feedback from our patients up to now has confirmed this as an important basis for successful treatment outcomes. We appreciate the very individual and personal exchange in treatment as much as our patients do, and seek to encourage this in feedback opportunities both digitally and face-to-face.
