All in one convenient location!
Our Post-Operative Recovery Room is designed to give you the very best in post-surgery care. Located right next to our nurses station, our staff of highly trained nurses are there to monitor and care for you following your surgery and while you prepare to leave for home. They provide home care instructions which include wound care, pain management, activity recommendations, as well as practical suggestions to ensure you have a successful recovery while in the comfort of your own home.
The Surgery Center is a Class C facility certified to perform all types of anesthesia including local, regional and general. Your anesthesia is provided by a licensed M.D., Board Certified Anesthesiologist. (For more information about anesthesia, see our article.) As an additional safety, our surgical facility connects directly with North Central Baptist Hospital.
Accredited for best assurance of safety, quality & efficiency
DrYoungForever is proud that our facility is fully accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). To achieve this goal every accredited surgery facility must meet stringent national standards for equipment, operating safety, personnel and surgeon credentials.
With the growing number of unaccredited surgery facilities,operating independent of any peer review and inspection process, it is important to know that AAAASF accreditation is today’s best assurance of safety, quality and efficiency in the outpatient surgery environment. For more information on the benefits of receiving care at an accredited facility, visit the AAAASF website.
Your safety is one of our top priorities
We willingly undergo rigorous inspection each year in order to certify that our facility is in complete compliance and meets or exceeds AAAASF standards. To tour our Surgery Center, you would see that we look just like a large hospital’s Operating Rooms, because WE ARE a fully equipped facility designed to deliver the very best in care with your complete safety in mind.
Our Office and Surgery Center is adjacent to North Central Baptist Hospital, which can be accessed quickly in the event of an emergency. To ensure the very best care, we also extend availability to post-surgery patients 24/7 via 24 hour answering service which will contact us if you have concerns during after hours or weekends.
Hour of Operation
Our Office and Surgery Center is open Monday through Friday. Regular business hours are 9am to 5 pm, and this is the best time to phone us. The Surgery Center itself opens early in order to prepare for surgeries that start at 8am or earlier. The Surgery Center is a “Day Surgery” facility, and does not offer any overnight services. Home nursing care can be arranged for those who do not have family or friends to help attend to them following surgery. You can discuss this option with your Surgery Coordinator any time prior to your surgery.
Dr. Young operates on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursday mornings until noon, and Fridays. Because Dr. Young’s Surgery Center is adjacent to his clinic offices, and are used only by DrYoungForever surgeons, we can offer the greatest flexibility in scheduling your surgery.
We allow one person to accompany you on your day of surgery – the friend or relative you choose to bring you to your surgery and pick you up when you are released.
We urge all of our patients to make appropriate arrangements for childcare when you come on your surgery day, as children of any age are not allowed to accompany you.
Your cosmetic procedure is surgery, and our policies are very much like a hospital’s. Friends and family are not allowed to accompany you into our surgery Center. We respect that other patients will be in varying degree of undress, preparation, recovery, and/or care from the doctors and nurses. They need and deserve our staff’s undivided attention, as you do throughout your surgery. In addition, our OR areas are kept sterile in order to reduce the risk of infection to our patients. For these reasons, we ask for your understanding and cooperation.
Our entire office and Surgery Center is geared for providing you with the best care possible to ensure a great outcome to your surgery. We look forward to helping you achieve your personal cosmetic goals.
