Staff & Facilities
Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center is a state licensed and federally certified Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC). Our surgery center is dedicated to Plastic Surgery and addresses patient comfort, safety and privacy like no other practice in the region can. The ASC status requires us to meet or exceed over 2,000 stringent standards in environmental and life safety, risk management, quality assurance and emergency management procedures set forth by the U.S. government. The ASC licensure and certification is in effect, granted based on a strict adherence to all applicable standards of a major hospital. Each year the ASC must undergo a series of unannounced inspections and surveys by the federal and state governments to ensure adherence to these standards. Since the Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center opened, we have received commendation with no deficiencies on all of our annual inspections and surveys.
Patient comfort and safety are of a paramount concern at the Center. Consistent with our philosophy of exceeding accepted standards, the Center demands that only board certified physicians are utilized for the administration of anesthesia. Additionally our entire medical staff is fully certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support as an essential emergency management measure.
