Mi-tec Medical Publishing publishes 20 Patient Education Pamphlets for orthopaedic surgeons in Australia and New Zealand. The objective of each pamphlet is to assist orthopaedic surgeons with their informed consent process, reduce the medico-legal risk of failure to inform and improve patient outcomes. 

The orthopaedic patient education pamphlets can be useful tools for patients considering surgical treatment as the benefits, risks and limitations of surgery are discussed in detail. The possible complications of orthopaedic surgery are listed to assist the informed-consent process. 

The range of orthopaedic patient information includes topics such as Hip Arthroscopy, Hip Replacement Surgery, Knee Arthroscopy, Surgery of the Foot and Ankle, Spinal Fusion Surgery, Surgical Treatment of Rotator Cuff Tear, Surgical Treatment of Arthritis of the Shoulder, Surgical Replacement of the Knee Joint and more.

The patient information is written in plain English to assist the patients’ understanding of health information and to help patients make informed decisions. Each pamphlet is 4 pages and is printed in colour on high-quality A4 sheets.
