The simplest way to guarantee that your surgeon is fully trained and qualified in the specialty that your procedure requires is board certification. By holding surgeons to rigorous standards, board certification informs patients that their doctor is committed to quality healthcare and lifelong learning. It is a voluntary, additional process that goes beyond medical licensing requirements and demonstrates that the doctor is continually expanding his or her knowledge in their specialty, including patient safety. Dr. Hardy is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS), which is one of 24 member boards recognized by the non-profit American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). He is also a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery, which assures that its members are highly trained in plastic and reconstructive surgery. In addition, Dr. Hardy is a member of several other medical societies and has won numerous awards for his surgical performance and contributions to clinical education.
In addition to their education and training, a doctor’s ability to foster a personal connection is key to patient satisfaction. Dr. Hardy’s plastic surgery practice sets itself apart through the high level of individualized attention given to each patient. Dr. Hardy believes it is extremely beneficial for patients to be educated about their procedures, and makes it a priority to address all their questions and concerns. A cornerstone of the practice is to provide each patient with a unique assessment and plan for their aesthetic goals as well as specialized counseling. His practice is distinguished largely by the facility itself. As a fully accredited medical facility, his surgery center includes qualified, experienced support staff and adequate personnel and equipment to respond to emergencies. It also conforms to strict standards for cleanliness and patient care. Dr. Hardy feels that the setting of the practice itself should be appealing. The thoughtful design of the facility is both welcoming and calming. We want patients to feel relaxed and safe, and to notice that the pride we take in our work is reflected in the environment that surrounds them.
