What Is AAAASF Accreditation?

Bancroft Feldman is AAAASF accredited, but what exactly does that mean for our patients and why is it an important consideration when choosing a plastic surgeon?

AAAASF is the acronym for American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. It was established in 1980 as a way to bring about the standardization and quality of medical and surgical care in ambulatory (office-based or outpatient) surgical facilities as well as to signal to the public that accredited medical practices comply with the high standards AAAASF espouses and requires. AAAASF accreditation is considered the gold standard for patient care.

In order to achieve AAAASF accreditation, a facility must be entirely compliant with all standards. No partial accreditation is given or can be achieved. Because of continuous advancement in the medical and surgical fields, the AAAASF reviews and revises its standards in order to address any changes or new developments. Only board certified medical specialists conduct inspections of surgical facilities, and they follow a carefully designed inspection procedure, covering the following categories:

General environment

Operating room environment, policies and procedures

What Does Board Certified Mean for Plastic Surgeons?

Patients who choose to pursue care under a board certified plastic surgeon can have confidence that they have selected a physician that the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Inc. ensures has graduated from an accredited medical school and has completed at least 5 years worth of training as a resident surgeon in a program accredited by either the Accreditation Council for Medical Education or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Accredited physicians must also have spent at least two of their 5 years of residency concentrating entirely on plastic surgery. After this they must pass both comprehensive written and oral exams. It’s a rigorous process, and certification must be maintained as well over time.

Why is this important? Because patients who put their bodies in the hands of physicians deserve to know that those physicians are highly trained and held to a high standard of both education and experience. Choosing a surgeon carefully is important, not only from a health and safety perspective, but because this is the person you will communicate with about your body and your concerns, and you need to have trust and confidence in his abilities and character.

It is not only patients who concern themselves with certification. Hospitals and health care facilities as well as insurance companies, lawyers, and research organizations also do their research and make decisions based on a physician’s board certification status.
