Excerpt
    Medicolegal jurisprudence is ever increasing, and it is the right of each patient to have in-depth knowledge about their surgical procedure. Consent means voluntary and mutual agreement or permission. Preoperative informed consent should not only delineate the procedure, but also highlight the concerned risks.

However, written consent has certain drawbacks, including language, medical terms, understanding complications, expectations, and queries regarding surgery. An innovative approach to make informed consent simpler and more patient-friendly, such as video informed consent, may help in overcoming these barriers.
