Our Plastic Surgeons

The physicians in the St. Joseph’s Aesthetic Surgery Program are board certified specialists. This certification is your assurance of their skill and experience with the most current techniques. The surgeons for the Aesthetic Surgery Program are members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Through this professional organization, surgeons stay current of the latest techniques and procedures. Visit our plastic surgeons page to learn more about them. 


Cosmetic surgery is a personal matter. To provide you with the level of privacy you seek:

  • Prior to the surgery date, all communication with the Surgery Center will be conducted through your surgeon's office only.
  • You may call the surgery center at (315) 329-2500 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to address any questions or concerns you may have.
  • If your surgery requires an overnight stay, you will have a comfortable, private room complete with television, telephone and DVD.
  • You can choose to have visitors between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.
  • No information will be given to callers regarding your condition without prior permission.

Financial Considerations

  • Most aesthetic/cosmetic surgery isn’t covered by insurance, therefore, NESC has created a fee schedule that includes a total charge for your anticipated needs during your surgical stay.  This fee is referred to as the facility fee. In addition, the surgeon and anesthesiologist will bill you separately.
  • The inclusive facility fee is determined by the type and complexity of the procedure, the type of anesthesia and length of stay.
  • The fee schedule for facility, surgeon and anesthesia will be provided to you by your surgeon during your initial consultation visit.
  • We accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express, checks or cash. Payment is due prior to surgery.
