Ata O. Egrari MD Surgical Unit is a state of the art facility named after Dr. Egrari’s father, who retired from a brilliant surgical career in Los Angeles.
This is an impeccable, technologically advanced unit that embodies at its core first safety and then function. Located in our facility, it is built according to the stringent specifications of Medicare and is accredited by American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF). It is also licensed by the State of Washington Department of Health.
Patients who make the journey are pampered with the most competent nursing and ancillary service available. All staff responsible for patient care has Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) credentials.
We continually maintain our skills and educate ourselves with routine meetings, activities and workshops. All equipment and infrastructure are tested on a strict schedule. A hospital grade generator brings power to the entire unit in case of a power failure. Again, safety is at the core of everything that we do. Everything else comes secondary. Our anesthesia is delivered by a group of board certified anesthesiologists that also complies with our strict policy of safety and continual medical education.
Privacy and confidentiality are also very highly regarded here. Our patients are led to the unit through a private elevator away from the flow of the office, with reserved parking in the parking garage where the private elevator entrance is. From here, they are truly engulfed in a caring and comfortable environment.
Multiple private areas accommodate family members as they wait for for their loved ones. During this wait, our staff assures their comfort and convenience. Wi-Fi is available for connection throughout the office. There are private changing corridors for personal belongings as well.
Once registered and seen by anesthesia, the patient visits with Seattle plastic surgeon Dr. Egrari. He performs the very important markings on the proposed areas. From here, the patients are led to the operating room. They will lie on a state-of-the-art bed that has been warmed by a warm flow device. Relaxing music plays in the background. A comfortable and safe journey awaits them as the highest level monitoring systems support and maintain every vital function of the body.
At the end of the operation, patients will be led to the recovery area for a smooth awakening. Certified registered nurses will continuously monitor and recover the patients on a one-to-one basis. Once the patient is awake, comfortable and alert, and is able to drink fluids, she/he is led to a secondary area and eventually transported out through a private elevator down to their mode of transportation.
We like to think that this experience will neutralize the burden of worry associated with major surgery. Our surgical unit complies with the standard of our practice and delivers a safe, comfortable journey toward your quest for beauty and function.
