Should I Be Concerned if my Doctor Has No Nurses?

I am considering getting Rhinoplasty surgery. When I went to visit with the facial surgeon I was told that he doesn't have any nurses on staff. Does this mean that there will not be any nurses present during the surgery? Should I be concerned?

Several things to check when considering plastic surgery

Great question. You should always ask these types of questions and I applaud your homework. If the facial surgeon is performing the procedure in his office, you should definitely make sure that the facility is accredited, that your doctor is board certified and that he has appropriate certified staff - this includes a board certified anesthesia and an OR nurse. Physicians that perform procedures in their offices can sometimes bend the rules a little bit and many times some physicians will have an office based surgery center to avoid the stringent requirements involved in getting priviledges to perform specific surgeries (this doesn't seem to be the case here). Don't compromise your safety. I hope this helps.
