Patient-focused Websites

Websites that are created to disseminate patient literature are to be used only as guidelines. These sites provide basic information about a variety of medical conditions and their treatment. They are not intended to diagnose a medical condition. The treatment of medical conditions varies according to each individual’s unique needs and doctor assessments. As with any surgery or medical procedure, the best source for information and advice is your doctor.

Software that is available on this website is copyrighted by us or by the owner of the software. Software may not be copied, redistributed, or placed on any server for further distribution. You may not sell, modify, decompile, disassemble, or otherwise reverse engineer the software.

A description or reference to a non-company product, service, or publication on this website (including any description or reference via hyperlink) does not imply that we endorse that product, service, or publication.

Notice and procedure for making claims of copyright infringement

In accordance with United States copyright law, any notifications of claimed copyright infringement should be sent to our designated agent. See our “Procedure for copyright infringement claims” below.

We do not warrant that this website will be error-free or that defects will be corrected.
