In our offices, we have every patient sign a consent form. This is designed to protect both the patient and the physician. The consent form outlines everything that can go wrong. You have a right to know these things and we have an obligation to inform you of them. You can download this form from our website. Complications from hair restoration surgery are uncommon, but they do occur. Consent forms are not legal disclaimers. They are a consent to perform a procedure following a full explanation of the procedure, its limits, and its risks. They are not a barrier to protect a physician from legal proceedings that result from negligent care. If a physician performs negligently, he has no protection from the courts.
