that cosmetic surgery has been highly publicized and more
people are seeking cosmetic enhancements, Unity Hospital has
expanded its role in providing these services.
SURGERY REFERRAL SERVICE
In 1992 Unity Hospital (then called Park Ridge Hospital) and staff Plastic Surgeons began
a Cosmetic Referral Service to assist patients seeking information
about cosmetic surgery. The service
has taken hundreds of calls. Information about surgery is
given by experienced and knowledgeable staff. The service
continues in conjunction with the Department of Plastic
Surgery. Referrals are made to those Board Certified in
Plastic Surgery or to those Plastic Surgeons who are Board
Eligible in Plastic Surgery and who take a special interest
in Cosmetic Surgery. Call 585 723 8830.
The hospital has provided extremely competent and dedicated
care by Registered Nurses specializing in the care of individuals
seeking cosmetic surgery. The nursing staff at the Ambulatory
Center specializes not only in the physical care but are
experienced and interested in providing emotional support
for cosmetic surgery patients. Some nurses have taken interest
in specialized areas such as liposuction. Up to date techniques
and the introduction of new techniques such as liposuction
in 1982, tumescent liposuction in the late 1980s, endoscopic
small incision cosmetic surgery have been
some of the state of the art techniques introduced or performed
at Unity Hospital.
The Hospital has been extremely cooperative in trying to
provide very reasonable rates for services. The hospital
administration has taken time to assure that very specific
procedures are cost listed. This enables individuals to
have less extensive surgery.
Safety is an important aspect of cosmetic surgery. The Ambulatory Surgery Center at
Unity Hospital was the second such center
approved by the State of New York to provide ambulatory
(usually same day ) surgery. It is a facility approved by the Joint Commission for
the Accreditation of Hospitals Organization (JCAHO). The
Ambulatory unit has a history of providing safe ambulatory
services to an estimated seventy thousand individuals. The
availability of highly trained and Board Certified anesthesiologists
enables the Plastic Surgeon to deliver care to a diversified
age group. Cosmetic surgery is available for the young and
for those who are young in their eighth and ninth decades
'Extended' or 'overnight stay' services have been available through
the ambulatory unit for many years. Individuals having extensive
cosmetic surgery have the option of an extended stay. For
a very reasonable cost an overnight stay arrangement can
be made for a supervised recovery under the direction of
the plastic surgeon. Some individuals like the security
of the extended stay. Some who live far from the city may
elect to stay overnight. While the service is not usually
needed, it is and has been available at a reasonable cost.
The hospital has worked with the staff plastic surgeons
over many years to make Unity a leader in cosmetic
surgery. Our mutual goal continues to be personalized, quality
surgical care for a spectrum of age groups at a reasonable
cost but most of all, with safety.
