Laser News, Inc. is a consumer-oriented web site for information on laser aesthetic and refractive surgeries. The Center provides the most up-to-date information on laser surgery specialties to inform consumers about innovative procedures that have recently become available.
Under the care of a skilled laser surgeon, modern aesthetic laser surgery can be done in an office setting with minimal recuperation. Usually a patient's laser surgery is not even noticeable by close friends and relatives except perhaps for compliments on the patient's enhanced appearance.
Getting ready to undergo a surgical procedure is a serious undertaking. Patients should be prepared to ask their physicians questions not only about their personal credentials and training, but also about their practice and abilities to perform the procedure they are considering.
Looking for a seal of accreditation can help you make some of these informed choices. Accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) means that the organization, whether it is a multi-specialty ambulatory surgery center or a single-specialty office based practice, has undergone a thorough review of its policies and practices.
