Why ABPS Board Certification Matters When You Choose a Plastic Surgeon


Why ABPS Board Certification Matters When You Choose a Plastic SurgeonWhen it comes to plastic surgery in Arizona, you want the best of the best in your area, and part of being a notable plastic surgeon involves having and maintaining board certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). In order to gain ABPS certification, a plastic surgeon must have extensive training and education in this field of medicine as well as pass written and oral tests. Our plastic surgeon, Dr. John Corey, is not only ABPS board-certified but was also Chief of Plastic Surgery at the Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center and has been voted one of the top doctors in the Phoenix, Arizona area.

There are many reasons to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon such as the peace of mind that comes with knowing your doctor is highly qualified to perform your plastic surgery. Additionally, you can trust that your physician:

  • Has finished his or her residency with an accredited institution.
  • Has made the commitment to be re-certified every eight years.
  • Devotes a minimum of 50 hours each year to continuing his or her medical education.
  • Has completed an advanced course on medical ethics, which ensures you receive quality care and compassion before, during and after your plastic surgery.

Certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery isn’t a requirement to practice medicine, but it should be one of the deciding factors when you choose a plastic surgeon for your cosmetic procedure.
