    Facetalk

    Our team’s shisis surgeons perform a number of checks after operations via FaceTalk, an online video chat program. It can be compared to Skype or FaceTime, a secured environment. Of course, we would like to see you in the hospital when necessary, but in a number of cases it is more practical for you, and works just as well, to contact us via a tablet or computer. Feel free to ask about the possibilities.
