Cohen Outpatient Surgery Center
People have many options when it comes to plastic surgery in the Beverly Hills and greater Los Angeles area, but when it comes to choosing the right physician, safety is the most important factor to look for. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Andrew T. Cohen, performs all surgical procedures in the Cohen Outpatient Surgery Center here in Encino. This state-of-the-art facility is accredited by the AAAASF, demonstrating Dr. Cohen’s commitment to patients’ safety and overall well-being.
Why Is Surgical Facility Accreditation Important?
Having AAAASF accreditation means the Cohen Outpatient Surgery Center meets the strict safety and quality standards established by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities. Considered the gold standard in accreditation, the AAAASF is a private organization that regularly assesses facilities throughout the country to ensure they have taken the necessary steps to prioritize patient safety. Since July of 1996, the state of California has required all outpatient surgery centers to maintain accreditation to protect patients’ health.
Dr. Cohen and our team not only meet, but exceed the rigorous standards set by the AAAASF. We abide by extensive safety regulations, such as:
- Maintaining up-to-date equipment to monitor patients’ vitals
- Adhering to the necessary building codes
- Following stringent sanitation protocols
- Utilizing a board-certified anesthesiologist to administer anesthesia
- Undergoing routine inspections by AAAASF representatives
By implementing these measures and operating in our own surgical center, we are able to minimize the risk of patients developing infections or other complications. When choosing Dr. Cohen for your cosmetic procedure, you can expect the utmost privacy, comfort, and quality throughout the course of your plastic surgery experience. Our mission is to provide you with safe and effective care, so you can obtain the beautiful, natural-looking results you desire.
