Surgiplex Operating Suite
Northern New Jersey Plastic Surgery
Surgiplex is a 2300 square foot American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF) accredited and Medicare certified ambulatory surgical facility, physically integrated in the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery. It is a state-of-the-art facility which duplicates the safety of a hospital in a more relaxed, aesthetic, calming atmosphere.
Design and Equipment
Patient safety was foremost in our design of Surgiplex. Features include a dedicated HVAC system with high grade filtration to maximize air purification, piped in anesthesia gas from a remote storage tank room to the operating room, high capacity compressed air and vacuum pumps and an emergency generator to provide electricity in the event of a power failure.
“Surgiplex is a very modern, well equipped facility where good quality, safe intra and postoperative care can be provided.” —Facelift Patient
Our operating room lights, procedure table, anesthesia, monitoring and other equipment are all state of the art. Additional safety precautions are taken such as the routine use of mechanical calf compression and warm air body blankets.
“It was a pleasure to come to your office. From the start, how beautifully and clean your office was, to the information given from the video and your staff. I was very happy with my visit.” —Plastic Surgery Patient
Patient comfort has been assured by the use of an experienced designer to provide a warm and cozy feeling in our recovery area. Soft lighting, attractive wall coverings and fabrics along with cherry wood cabinets create a soothing environment. Scenic photographs taken by Dr. Parker are displayed throughout the facility.
Operating Room Staff
We are proud of our highly educated and experienced medical staff. Our team of anesthesiologists are all board certified and members of the full time attending staff at Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, New York. Our nursing staff includes six registered nurses specifically trained in the care of the plastic surgery patient. A well trained and certified medical technician completes our surgical team. Our operating room staff are Advanced Cardiac Life Support Certified.
The full spectrum of cosmetic plastic surgical procedures including facelifts, breast augmentation and breast reduction, tummy tuck, and liposuction are performed in our facility. Patients who undergo facelifts, abdominoplasty, and large volume liposuction or multiple procedures necessitating a lengthy recovery time are monitored overnight in our facility by a registered nurse for maximal safety.
It is necessary to charge a separate fee for the use of the facility which is in addition to the anesthesia and surgical fees. The duration and type of procedure determine the facility fee. It is substantially less than what a hospital would charge and there is no additional fee if surgery should take longer than the estimated time. Hospitals commonly charge for this. We’ll include the facility fee in your individualized plastic surgery fee quote at your consultation.
