All plastic surgery procedures are performed in our own private, fully-certified ambulatory surgery center. Our office suite and surgery center are connected to the North Central Baptist Medical Center.
The Ambulatory Surgery Center at our practice is certified by the American Association for the Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). Designed to ensure verifiable quality care with specific requirements, the AAAASF maintains strict standards that the facility must meet. Maintaining safety and quality of care in the ambulatory surgery setting requires constant review.
As a leader in accrediting organizations, the AAAASF has developed a program that effectively monitors and implements the latest state-of-the-art advances in outpatient care. These advances directly impact and benefit the patient. To qualify for AAAASF accreditation, the facility must meet specific requirements. The AAAASF rigorously inspects and evaluates each facility to ensure that it meets their standards of excellence.
After accreditation is achieved, the facility is required to perform an annual in-house evaluation to identify any areas that may need improvement. Every three years a formal on-site inspection is performed by a qualified AAAASF inspector. All AAAASF accredited facilities are regularly monitored and improved through an analysis of facility performance compared to the established standards.
The facility is staffed with healthcare professionals who are all outstanding in their respective fields. The highly skilled teams of anesthesiologists, scrub technologists, and Registered Nurses have extensive training and experience in the most sophisticated Plastic Surgery procedures and techniques. This allows Dr. Lawton to provide the highest level of care in the safest possible environment. The Surgery Center is used only by our surgeons, and is staffed with only our employees. This helps us to ensure that your plastic surgery experience is as smooth and pleasant as possible.
