The author was responsible for most of the text that is contained in the site. Although there is a great deal of agreement between doctors on the specifics of ENT surgery and consent, there are very few hard and fast rules that can be applied. I have tried to present information that is commonly accepted, but it is vital to reme,ber that this site is not a substitute for a consultation with your doctor. Views expressed in this site may not be the same as those expressed by your surgeon. These details are, for the most part, common knowledge amongst ENT surgeons and hence the need for a site to pass this knowledge to our patients. A few key textbooks were used for the purpose of reference:

Key Topics in Otolaryngology Key Topics in Otolaryngology (By: NJ Roland, BIOS Scientific Publishers, November 2000 (Paperback), ISBN: 1859961983)
