Our Operating Suite
Our Operative Suite is a state-of-the-art facility that provides the safety of a hospital in the setting of a comfortable, modern, and private office. An ultra-sterile, private, personalized environment along with a team of specialized, consistent, experienced plastic surgery personnel offers patients a top-notch experience. As a team, we strive to create a special operative and recovery experience for every patient.
Our Surgical Facility is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, which is one of the largest not-for-profit accrediting organizations in the United States and the gold standard for Plastic Surgery Facilities. Our Facility was built in consultation with Universal Healthcare Consulting, a risk management team with over 20 years of experience creating office operating rooms to the highest level of specification. Our goal in creating our facility was to exceed the standards of the state and national office accreditation organizations.
Dr. Cooper performs every procedure himself with the support of an experienced and consistent staff of anesthesiologists, CRNAs, surgical assistants, and registered nurses. Our nursing staff are RNs (Registered Nurses) and accompany each patient in a private recovery room during the post-operative recovery. All our RNs maintain ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) certification.
Design and Equipment
Our operating room suite was built and supervised by an experienced general contractor with 20 years of experience in hospital and medical office construction. Important design features include built-in custom cabinetry to house oxygen and nitrous tanks, built in speakers, the brightest most efficient operative lighting, customized air conditioning system, an elaborate fire alarm system inspected by the Jupiter Fire Department and a high capacity emergency generator capable of powering the entire surgical suite for hours.
Our equipment is truly state-of-the-art. We perform all types of anesthesia in our operative suite. Our anesthesia equipment provides the most advanced monitoring available for both general and sedation anesthesia. We also use warming blankets and mechanical calf compression devices in the operating suite and recovery areas. Our operating room table is a full-size AMSCO hospital OR table with tilt and return to level function as well as battery backup. We upgraded the standard foam table top to the most comfortable three-ply foam surface that is seamless. We use hotel quality linens on our operating table, and provide each patient with a plush bathrobe during their operative stay. Our operating suite is designed to provide a soothing, modern environment.
A facility fee charge is a separate fee from the anesthesia and surgical fees. The facility fee is contemplated based on the type of procedure, the length of time and necessary position changes during the procedure.
We do not apply additional charges if the procedure takes longer than estimated as is typical in both a hospital and surgical centers.
