Stephens Plastic Surgery Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC)
Stephens Plastic Surgery Center is accredited by the American Association of Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities, (AAAASF) and licensed by the Department of Health (DOH) of the State of Washington to provide all levels of anesthesia including general anesthesia and conscious sedation.
As Medical Director of our ASC, Dr. Stephens maintains the highest standards of patient safety and confidentiality in accordance of the best ambulatory facilities, bar none. The facility boasts, “state of the art”, technology in anesthesia and surgical equipment and devices. Membership in the AAAASF ensures that we maintain current policies and procedures and governance to the highest level.
Our team consists of a Board Certified Anesthesiologist with over 25 years of a stellar safety record, Dr. Stephens, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, a super, detail oriented, Registered Nurse Manager with over fifteen years of surgical nursing and management experience who is also dedicated to the highest level of patient safety, having worked in the best hospitals of the Northwest, including Overlake and the Providence Hospital System and an amazing Certified Surgical Technician who has been Dr. Stephens super-assistant for over 18 years since leaving as a hospital CST to their disappointment. She handles the complex equipment such as the endoscopic and laser systems as well as a perfectionist plastic surgeon with the ease of a magician! That is because she embodies these characteristics herself, as does all members of the team! This represents close to 100 years of combined operating room experience (please bold this)!! Our anesthesiologist’s technical skill belies his humorous and kind nature; our patients love him. He provides an added dimension of security and calm to what is sometimes a scary event in our patient’s lives. Whether our head nurse or one of our other RN’s, we pride ourselves on our communication and dedication to patient comfort.
Notwithstanding, safety standards don’t necessarily show the quality of the facility that we have here which is in our staff. The attention to detail, cleanliness, friendliness and a dedication to professionalism and outstanding customer service is a common theme among the staff of Stephens Plastic Surgery from the time the patient comes in the office for the first time, until they are discharged from the practice. We consider our patients part of our greater family and friends. We maintain a zealous level of confidentiality for our patients, whether you are a celebrity or an average person you experience the same level of commitment to care and comfort. We endeavor to treat our patients like we would want to be treated.
Our ASC has a convenient back door exit to ensure a smooth egress after surgery as well as a convenient door alongside the elevator to our office if needed after your procedure. There is no detail that goes unnoticed.
We welcome all of our patients for a tour of our office during their consultation to show off how proud we are of the excellent facility we have maintained here for the past 18 years. This is why our patients and colleagues have ranked Stephens Plastic Surgery the top “Cosmetic Surgery”, practice on the Eastside as well of all of the Puget Sound Region.
