Redefining Outpatient Surgery
Welcome to the Somenek + Pittman MD Surgical Suite, the newest facility of its kind in Washington, DC. In designing and building our new surgical suite, Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Michael Somenek and his team are able to deliver high-quality concierge care throughout the entire patient encounter. There is no longer a need to go to a busy hospital for surgery. Every detail has been curated to provide safe, patient centered care with the utmost privacy and discretion.
The Day of Surgery – What to Expect
On the day of surgery, you report directly to the Surgical Suite entrance which is Suite 501 (the suite directly in front of you when you get off the elevator on the 5th floor). Once in the waiting room, you pick up the courtesy phone which will directly ring the nurses station. You are greeted by a nurse that personally escorts you through the pre and post-op process.
The space itself is calming and expansive with a ton of natural light. You will recognize the signature scent and music that you’ve come to associate with the S+P brand in the office. Once settled in the pre-op area, you will meet with your anesthesiologist who will be with you during the entire surgery. You will also meet with Dr. Somenek who will complete your surgical markings before being escorted to the operating room.
Following your procedure, you are escorted to the recovery room. Our top priority in recovery is assuring your comfort. Once recovered, you are escorted by your nurse, through a private exit, directly to your waiting companion or family member.
A Commitment to Safety
The operating rooms have been outfitted with needlepoint bipolar ionization technology to filter and deliver the cleanest air possible (think next generation HEPA filters).
Our fellowship-trained anesthesiologists are present throughout the entire operation and play an active role in the initial evaluation and recovery of our patients. The nursing staff are all highly experienced in peri-operative care and have had several years experience in the city’s large medical centers.
Recover in Luxury
Many of our patients choose to recover in the beautiful Fairmont Hotel which is steps from our surgical suite and office. The hotel stay allows patients to peacefully recover while enjoying tea service delivery the evening of surgery and chicken noodle soup the morning after. Private nursing care can also be arranged. The additional benefit of having our patients at the Fairmont is that we are able to personally visit them the morning after surgery.
