Our Quality

When you entrust your care to the UMass Memorial Cosmetic Surgery Center, you can take comfort in our unwavering commitment to patient safety. Here are just a few examples of that commitment:

  • We are part of the prestigious UMass Memorial Medical Center, the 2009 winner of the Betsy Lehman Award for Patient Safety. This award, granted by a program of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, recognizes our success in reducing health care-associated infections while promoting a culture of safety throughout the organization.
  • We are fully accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF), considered a gold standard of quality. To be accredited by this association, organizations must meet tough national standards for equipment, safety, staff and surgeons. The UMass Memorial Cosmetic Surgery Center meets all of the AAAASF standards.
  • Our team is made up of board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians who are members of the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Not only are they highly skilled, they are highly committed to staying up to date on the latest techniques and procedures.
  • Our plastic surgeons are among the most experienced in the Central New England region. Our physicians are sought out for their expertise in both simple and complex cosmetic surgical procedures. And they are members of the faculty of the University of Massachusetts Medical School, where they teach tomorrow’s plastic surgeons today.
