Pre and Post Operative Care

Our surgical and post operative recovery facilities are regularly certified by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia.

Skinworks has one of the most experienced post operative teams in Vancouver, and with over 100 years of combined experience, you could not be in better hands. Our post operative team is led by Dr. Carr and consists of Dr. Lee (anaesthesiologist), a team of accredited OR nurses, and our post operative care nurse. Our OR and recovery teams undergo regular training in patient safety and care.

Pre and post operative care are very important aspects of even the most minor surgery. Dr. Carr and our experienced team will design a customized care program that provides maximum safety and minimum post surgical discomfort. These programs are also designed to help you achieve the best possible surgical results. What else can you expect from Skinworks? Tammy, our Patient Coordinator, will guide you through pre and post operative instructions before your surgery. On the day of your surgery, our recovery nurse will review instructions with you again.
