The PCLSC is a Non-Hospital Surgical Facility (three full operating rooms) accredited by the Alberta College of Physicians and Surgeons. All medical staff at PCLSC are ACLS (acute cardiac life support) accredited.
A number of city Plastic surgeons use this facility, where a wide variety of cosmetic procedures are done as day procedures (home the same day of surgery) either under local anesthetic, local anesthetic with conscious sedation or general anesthetic (this is provided by a fully accredited hospital based anesthetic specialist).
All patients are seen in consultation by Dr. Giuffre in his office prior to booking a reconstructive or cosmetic surgical procedure. The office is adjacent to the surgical facility (#176 Meadowlark Health Centre, Edmonton); 780-428-7737).
Patients do not require a physician referral to book a consultation. There is no fee charged for the consultation if the patient has Alberta Health Care coverage.
