Why We Have Our Own Surgical Facility - WBOC-TV 16, Delmarvas News Leader, FOX 21 -

Why We Have Our Own Surgical Facility

We have our own surgical facility for multiple reasons. 

 

Convenience: 

Patients who undergo their surgery in a hospital setting must travel to yet another facility, worry about finding  another parking place, pay for parking, wait in lines, register at another institution and interface with more strangers.  All of these tasks are avoided when we perform the surgery in our office-based surgical suite. 

 

Reduced stress

Patients and their families experience stress when they have to worry about driving to a hospital, finding a parking place there, walking through the hospital, smelling hospital odors, registering at the hospital, waiting in hospital lines and sitting in hospital waiting rooms.   Patients who decide to have their surgery in our operating room simply return to a familiar place with familiar faces.  It’s so much nicer. 

 

Lower risk of infection

Many post-operative wound infections result from cross contamination in the hospital.  Bacteria is accidentally carried from an infected patient to a healthy one undergoing surgery.  Since there are no sick, infected patients staying in our facility, patients treated in our facility have a lower risk of acquiring an infection.

 

Warmer Care

In our surgical suite we have %100 control over the behavior of the office staff and surgical team.  We have no such control over employees of any hospital.  All of our employees are required to treat our patients with the utmost respect and warm kindness.  Thus, patients treated in our facility receive care with more compassion and warmth.  

 

Fewer Delays

Surgery scheduled in a hospital O.R. can be delayed for hours due to earlier surgical cases performed by other surgeons of other specialties or unexpected trauma cases appropriately placed in front of scheduled ones.  Neither of these can take place in our surgical suite.  Patient and family frustration is avoided here. 

 

More economical

In our surgical suite, we are able to control the costs of surgery.  Therefore, our cosmetic surgery patients save hundreds or thousands of dollars if their surgery is performed there rather than in a hospital.  Furthermore, if one of our self-pay, cosmetic patients must return to the operating room for an adjustment or treatment of a surgical complication, we have the power to control the added costs only if the adjustment or correction is performed in our facility rather than in the hospital. This is very comforting to specifically our patients.
