Mr Massraf believes that communication between himself and the patient is essential, particularly with increasing media hype regarding new technologies, surgical techniques and implant designs. All of his patients are counselled and informed about the risks and benefits of any surgical procedure and he provides illustrations and information packages for those patients undergoing joint replacement surgery.

Mr Massraf and his medical and para medical colleagues are certain that patients recover more swiftly from their joint replacement surgery if things are explained to them in advance and had a good rehabilitation.
