Plastic Surgery Specialists in Baltimore is leading the way to the
new era of medical treatment outside of hospitals, and reporting high
patient satisfaction along the way. The accredited, on-site surgery
facility minimizes cost and wait times before surgery, while providing
exceptional quality of care.
Plastic Surgery Specialists, the largest plastic surgery practice in
Maryland, is a fully-accredited, on-site surgery center with advanced
equipment and high levels of safety. Outpatient procedures have been
growing in popularity recently, because not all procedures must be done
in a strictly hospital environment, and moving such procedures to
smaller clinics and medical facilities minimizes the cost to the patient
without forcing patients to sacrifice on safety.
"We are so pleased to be able to offer our patients a safe alternative
to having surgery in a hospital," said Dr. David H. Lowe."Our on-site
surgery center is accredited by the American Association for
Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF), a national
organization that sets standards to ensure the highest quality of care
in surgery facilities. People who visit us for everything from face
lifts to breast augmentation in Maryland have a comparable level of
equipment, personnel, and safety with that available in a hospital
Plastic Surgery Specialists is a 7,300 square-foot facility that
includes medical offices and the surgical center in the same complex.
The group also has consultation offices in other locations in the area.
Medical care providers at Plastic Surgery Specialists is lead by a group
of board-certified plastic surgeons, and surgical teams include
registered nurses (RNs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and certified
registered nurse anesthetists. Plastic Surgery Specialists offers a wide
range of cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures including face lifts,
breast enhancement, tummy tuck, and liposuction.
Dr. Christopher J. Splitter explained one of the advantages of pursuing
surgery in a smaller, more specialized health care setting. "Because we
focus on a small set of procedures relative to those performed in a
hospital, it is easier for us to keep up with technological advances,"
he said. "We have state-of-the-art, specialized equipment that enables
us to achieve beautiful results while minimizing recovery time. The art
of what we do comes in customizing these procedures to the diversity of
the human body and individual aesthetic goals." Dr. Paul Buhrer also
added, "Another advantage we offer is affordability. In a time when
people are watching every dollar closely, performing procedures in our
on-site center enables us to reduce some of the expense that goes along
with a hospital. We remain focused on providing exceptional value for
the people who choose our practice."
"On top of safety, our patients appreciate the human touch we are able
to offer them," said Dr. Daniel Laughlin. "Because the majority of our
procedures are elective, we want to make surgery as convenient as
possible. Our patients don't have the wait times before surgery that
commonly occur in hospitals and they rarely have to reschedule. We offer
a comfortable, inviting setting and greater confidentiality which all
enhance the overall experience."
