Expectant treatment, also known as watchful waiting or observation, is a medical approach where no active intervention is taken, but instead the patient's condition is monitored closely to see if it improves or worsens on its own. Synonyms for expectant treatment include conservative management, non-interventional approach, delayed intervention, and therapeutic delay. This approach may be recommended when an immediate intervention is not necessary or when the risks of intervention outweigh the benefits. It is often used for conditions like minor infections, low-risk injuries, or early stages of some diseases. Expectant treatment can be an effective and safe approach, especially for patients who are not good candidates for more invasive treatments.
