From Dr. Alisa Rekow to my patients and prospective patients:
I am delighted to offer you a variety of aesthetic (cosmetic) surgical services through my Seattle based practice. A number of years ago I determined to change the scope and focus of my practice to better meet the needs of my patients seeking surgical services through an office based ambulatory surgical center.
My office is located on the First Hill Campus of Swedish Hospital in the Arnold Pavilion (1221 Madison Street). The office encompasses a Medicare certified ambulatory surgical facility; thus I am able to provide you with the assurance of the high standard of care I insist upon while controlling the cost to you.
I trained in Plastic Surgery at the University of Utah and went on to complete fellowships in Reconstructive Microsurgery with Dr. David Hidalgo at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York and in aesthetic / cosmetic surgery with Drs. Baker, Gordon and Stuzin in Miami, Florida. In 1994 I established a private practice in Salt Lake City, Utah, moving to Washington State as a member of the Avalon Clinic in 2004 and subsequently in May 2006 I acquired the practice of Dr. Curran Smith here in Seattle.
Board certified since 1997 by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and most recently recertified in 2007, I am also an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
