Plastic Surgery at Pinnacle Hospital
The way we look is an important part of how we feel about ourselves. Perhaps you or someone you love has been in an accident, has suffered serious burns, or has had surgery such as mastectomy (removal of a breast) that requires reconstructive surgery. Or perhaps there is something about your appearance that makes you unhappy, that you would like to have taken care of.
Whatever your concern, plastic and reconstructive surgeons at Pinnacle Hospital have the skills to help. Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Pinnacle Hospital, whether performed on an inpatient or outpatient basis, is done in our 5 Main Operating Rooms.
Operating Room Team members include
- Registered Nurses
- OR Technicians
The OR staff pride themselves on educating patients in self-care, safety, and the procedures to follow after surgery. Their experience and expertise contribute to our success rates.
It is important for patients to select physicians who are certified in plastic surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Generally, a surgeon who is board-certified in plastic surgery has graduated from an accredited medical school and has completed at least five years of graduate medical education - usually three years of general surgery and two years of plastic surgery. In addition, the surgeon must practice plastic surgery for two years and pass comprehensive written and oral examinations to become board-certified.
