Blackhawk Surgery Center
The Blackhawk Surgery Center is a state-of-the-art facility located adjacent to Blackhawk Plastic Surgery. The center was created to allow our surgeons and staff to tailor a custom-made experience from start to finish. William J Kemerer MD, our full time anesthesiologist, has tremendous experience with plastic surgery anesthesia.
The process begins with a consultation or information visit. Dr. Ronan’s consultations tend to be lengthy. After he elicits the goals and desires of the patient and conducts a focused history and exam, Dr. Ronan reviews the options available. Risks of the particular procedure are discussed in great detail. Realistic expectations are discussed and before/after photos of actual patients are reviewed. All of your questions are answered. At the conclusion of the visit, you will review a quotation with the patient coordinator. The goal of the consultation is to provide the patient with more than enough information to make a good decision about the procedure(s).
Prior to surgery, a pre-operative, or ‘nuts and bolts,’ appointment is made. During this visit, the procedure is again reviewed and questions are answered. We will review your medical history and complete a more thorough physical exam. Appropriate lab tests and/or an EKG may be performed. Necessary paperwork is completed and photo documentation is completed. Pre- and post-operative instructions are reviewed, etc.
The process doesn’t end with surgery. Patients are carefully followed in the post-operative period. After recovery, patients can return for a lifetime of follow-up.
Patients feel both comfortable and secure knowing that they are in Dr. Ronan’s gifted hands. Explore the possibility of sculpting a new you.
Great words by my friend Grant Stevens! It is absolutely vital that you go to a board certified plastic surgeon for any plastic surgery. You should never have an augment by someone who isn’t properly trained in an accredited plastic surgery program and works in a fully accredited facility. If the facility isn’t accredited, don’t have surgery there. Thanks to Grant for representing our specialty.
