With COVID-19 spreading across the globe, the welfare of our patients and our staff must be our primary concern. As of March 16th, we made the decision to stop doing elective surgery at the Vancouver Plastic Surgery Center. The only patients being seen after that were people in the immediate post-operative period.
We are currently reviewing the situation on a weekly basis. When we feel it safe to start seeing patients and doing surgery again, we will do so with a minimum of 2 weeks' notice. Individual patients already booked for office appointments or surgery will be contacted directly by email.
Going forward, there is tremendous uncertainty about the future. We look forward to restarting surgical services at our facility as soon as possible, but in the meantime will be following the guidance of the British Columbia Ministry of Health.
We appreciate your patience and understanding.
