Share Article

Top-of-the-line technology and modern design come together to meet the sophisticated needs of Scottsdale area plastic surgery patients.

Robert Cohen, MD, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Scottsdale, Arizona, has announced the much-anticipated opening of the Paradise Valley Outpatient Surgery Center. This cutting-edge, state approved facility was designed to meet and exceed the sophisticated needs of Dr. Cohen's cosmetic surgery clientele. The Paradise Valley Outpatient Surgery Center's goal is to provide the highest degree of medical care in the areas of quality, safety and overall patient comfort.

When one first steps foot into this Phoenix-area plastic surgery center, it is clear that no expense or effort was spared in order to create a top-notch facility. From the blue pearl granite countertops in the recovery room, to the color-coordinated blue wood and stainless-steel cabinetry, the facility inspires confidence and provides a soothing environment for patients. The preoperative waiting area and treatment rooms were designed with natural woods and leathers to create a comfortable environment, minimizing stress for patients and their families.

In addition to excellent architecture and design, the Paradise Valley Outpatient Surgery Center houses the latest equipment and tools for minimally invasive and state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery. Filling one wall of the operating room, a giant flat screen monitor is mounted for use in endoscopic procedures. This monitor is also linked to Dr. Cohen's database in order to provide access to patient photos and medical information during surgery. A carbon-dioxide laser and power-assisted liposuction unit are also available to facilitate the most advanced plastic surgery techniques. Even the operating room environment is constantly controlled to provide the proper temperature and humidity level for optimal surgical conditions.

The personnel of the surgery center were hand-picked by Dr. Cohen to maintain his high standards for quality and safety. In particular, Terri Payne, RN, was selected as the Nursing Director due to her vast nursing experience, calm demeanor and attention to patient comfort and care. Dwight Painter, CST, who is the operating room manager and surgical scrub technician, was brought to the facility from Beverly Hills, where he worked with some of the most prominent plastic surgeons in the country. Mr. Painter has appeared on the television show "Extreme Makeover" multiple times, assisting surgeons such as Garth Fisher, MD.

The opening of Paradise Valley Outpatient Surgery Center has been met with significant local buzz in the Scottsdale, Phoenix and Paradise Valley areas, and patients have been expressing their enthusiasm to have cosmetic surgery procedures performed in this elegant, cutting-edge facility.

After 14 years of education and advanced training in some of the nation's most prestigious institutions, Dr. Robert Cohen returned to his native Scottsdale, Arizona, to establish his permanent practice. Dr. Cohen is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and has published multiple research papers and a textbook chapter on technology and robotics in plastic surgery.

Dr. Cohen welcomes patients from Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Phoenix and the rest of Arizona to his Scottsdale Center for Plastic Surgery and the new Paradise Valley Outpatient Surgery Center. For more information, call 480.423.1973 or visit
