Before any operation, a useful piece of information is knowing what other patients who have had the same procedure thought, after they had the surgery. This information is called PROMs, Patient Reported Outcome Measures.

PROMs are obtained by asking patients (who required the same procedure) to complete surveys on their symptoms, condition and overall quality of life, both before and after their surgery. This is used to measure the benefit or otherwise of the surgery.
