Our Fully Accredited Surgical Facility
Your safety is our highest priority. Dr. Beil, Dr. Sherick, Dr. Hing, and Dr. Charafeddine perform cosmetic surgery procedures in Ann Arbor in our state-of-the-art operating suite, which is fully accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). (Some restrictions apply due to the health of the patient and complexity of the procedure.) In doing so, our surgeons ensure patients have surgery in a clean, relaxing, quiet environment that offers the same standards of safety and preparedness as a hospital or surgery center.
What AAAASF Accreditation Means To You
For a facility to receive accreditation by the AAAASF, it must meet the same rigorous standards for cleanliness, equipment maintenance, staff qualification, and ethical practice that you would receive if you were having your plastic surgery performed in the hospital. The facility and its staff must also demonstrate the ability to respond fully and swiftly to any emergencies that may arise. By meeting these standards, you can feel confident that your surgeon and OR staff are taking every necessary precaution to minimize your risk of infection, anesthesia side effects, and other preventable complications.
Additionally, AAAASF accreditation requires that the plastic surgeon performing your surgery has privileges to perform the same procedure in the hospital, where he or she is subject to peer evaluation. This provides an additional layer of assurance that your surgeon is skilled and experienced in the specific procedure you are undergoing.
Finally, the AAAASF performs regular audits of all of its certified facilities to ensure the safest standards and practices are in place. Highly respected for its strict requirements and thorough facility evaluation process, AAAASF accreditation is considered the “Gold Standard” for ensuring patient safety in outpatient surgery.
