Modified June 2014 - MDH
The newest arrival to the Plastic Surgery family of services is here! Our newly-opened (April 2014) Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery Clinic at Northwest Hospital allows our UW surgeons to offer state of the art cosmetic surgeries and treatments in a more intimate community setting. Previously both patients and UW providers have looked outside UW medicine for aesthetic or recontouring procedures, which may represent the finishing steps after reconstructive or functional surgery. After massive weight loss, for example, body contouring can dramatically change patients’ self-esteem and has been shown to improve maintenance of weight loss. From recontouring, to the latest techniques for looking younger and fresher, to the tried and true benefits of abdominal tightening, our providers can now offer cutting edge surgical options at community-friendly prices.

Dr. Eileen Bulger Discusses Trauma Study
Harborview Medical Center is one of 10 trauma centers in the United States and Canada that aim to participate in a study of a therapeutic drug on people suspected of having sustained a traumatic brain injury. The study differs from nearly all medical research in that it has received federal approval to proceed without getting consent from study subjects prior to the initiation of the treatment.
