What is an accredited plastic surgery facility?

Arthur W. Perry, MD
Plastic Surgery
The options for plastic surgery include a hospital, a surgicenter, and a doctor's office. If you choose to be operated on in a doctor's office, be sure that the surgical facility is accredited by an independent national organization. Examples include the American Association for the Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities (AAAASF), the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory healthcare (AAAHC), the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), and the federal government through the Medicare program.
