Our Private Surgicenter

Our plastic surgery office in Connecticut near New Haven includes a fully equipped surgical suite for outpatient procedures, designed to enhance patient privacy, convenience, and comfort. It features advanced surgical and laser technology and has private waiting rooms and recovery areas, as well as a private exit to our parking area.

The facility is licensed by the state of Connecticut as an ambulatory surgical center and is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities (AAAASF). Our center is staffed by surgical, anesthesia, nursing, and technical personnel with extensive experience with plastic surgery.

If you are considering cosmetic surgery in Connecticut and would like to get a firsthand look at our private surgical center, request a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Price or call our office in Guilford at 203-453-6635. The office is convenient to Fairfield and New Haven plastic surgery patients and is only 90 minutes from New York.

What Does Accreditation Mean?

Knowing that our surgical center is accredited by the AAAASF provides peace of mind to our patients. To earn accreditation, a surgical center must meet or surpass a series of rigorous standards established by the AAAASF that are designed to ensure patient safety.

The requirements for an office-based surgical center to be accredited include:

  • Surgeons must have hospital privileges for any procedure performed.
  • Certified anesthetic professionals must be used for deeper levels of anesthesia.
  • Specific standards must be met for safe surgical environment, equipment, medications, and so on.
  • Standards must be the same as hospital operating rooms.

The AAAASF is considered the “gold standard” for accreditation of office-based surgical centers, and we’re proud of our achievement.

COVID-19 UPDATE

 

BREAKING NEWS!
We are beginning to plan for reopening of the office! We have begun to plan for a tentative reopening date of May 18th! We will be scheduling appointments beginning today, 4/27/2020, for in-office visits for that date and onward. Just leave a message for Kathleen at the office number, (203) 453-6635, and she will return your call to schedule!

 

Telemedicine available…
For several weeks now, we have been using a “virtual office visit “alternative which will remain available. This enables anyone with a cell phone to share a video of themselves as needed with Dr. Price and allows him to perform a consultation without you ever leaving home! These consultations are scheduled just like office visits and can be made simply by leaving a message on the office system for Kathleen…. (no new apps or changes to your phone needed!)

 

While you were gone…
Dr. Price has been quite busy as president of the Physicians Foundation as that organization tries to help doctors cope with the crisis. In addition, he is participating in daily remote teaching conferences organized by the Yale Plastic Surgery program. These conferences originate at Yale and other academic centers around the country and are viewed by surgeons around the world. Dr. Price is a member of the Northeast seven-state task force developing guidelines for the reopening of Plastic Surgical Ambulatory Surgery Centers as the stay at home orders and ban on elective surgery are lifted. We are hoping that elective surgery might resume as early as late May. This date is not certain yet, but we will keep you advised here.

 

Please stay safe and well! We are looking forward to seeing you as it becomes safe enough for you to see us!

 

WHY IS THE OFFICE CLOSED??

We have been asked to curtail any elective, non-urgent procedures or appointments for the following reasons.

1. To protect our patients.

2. To protect our staff.

3. To protect our community.

4. To avoid using precious supplies that might be needed to save the lives of others.

5. It’s the law!!!

 

Our entire staff is thinking of you during this difficult time. We appreciate your understanding and patience. We will resume in-person visits when reasonable and safe.
