Finding a Plastic Surgeon: Land of Confusion (part 1)

A young plastic surgeon just starting his own practice contacted the Yellow Pages to purchase a listing for his office.  Seeking a listing under plastic surgery physicians, he was shocked when no one at Yellow Pages asked him to prove he was board certified plastic surgeon; as long as he paid for the ad, Yellow Pages didn’t care.  The young plastic surgeon wondered if a physician could simply advertiser under any specialty s/he wanted in the Yellow Pages.  For instance, could a dermatologist advertise as a plastic surgeon?  Of the many physicians advertising under the section of “Physicians and Surgeons, M.D. –Plastic and Reconstructive,” he found several types of physicians, including: Board Certified/Eligible by the American Board of Plastic Surgery; Certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic Surgery; Certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery; and a dermatologist.  If a physician was confused by these choices within the Yellow Pages section of plastic and reconstructive surgeons, it’s little wonder that patients seeking plastic surgery are confused.  The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) is the main board certification organization in the United States, and under the ABMS are 24 medical specialty boards.  To learn more about these boards and how they are important in selecting a plastic surgeon, stay tuned for tomorrow’s blog story from The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center in Houston, Texas.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dr. Michael Eisemann, Dr. Bradley Eisemann, and the entire staff at Eisemann Plastic Surgery are committed to the health and safety of all of our patients and ourselves.

We are thankful to be connected to Houston Methodist Hospital, one of the most respected hospitals in the country. Because of this, our screening policy is aided by the hospital's official policies and checkpoint screening measures completed prior to entering our building. These measures allow us to do everything we can, at this point in time, to minimize the chance that we expose ourselves or our patients to someone who has been sick or contagious with the virus.

We are set up to perform new consults and patient follow-ups via ZOOM video conferencing.

As of Monday, March 23rd, our office is open. We are open and seeing select patients. If you are currently on the schedule, please call our office if you have any concerns about your own health.

While all major hospitals have stopped elective surgery at this time, we are very selectively performing indicated operative procedures in our procedure room and in our AAAASF certified operating room under local and IV sedation.

As always, both Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann are available by phone and email to answer any questions you may have.
