PRMA Named Healthcare Hero – Wins Healthcare Innovator Award
The winners of the Healthcare Hero award were announced this past Friday, recognizing some of San Antonio’s leaders in the health and biomedical fields.
Out of more than 75 nominations, the doctors and staff of PRMA are honored to be the 2013 winners of the Healthcare Innovator award for innovative technology, procedures, programs and services.
The winners were highlighted in the San Antonio Business Journal and will be recognized at the awards reception, May 15th at the McNay Art Museum.
Here are some of the highlights from PRMA’s article in the journal:
When did the organization hit its stride?
In 2005-2006 the practice went from three to four doctors and started utilizing the internet to get the word out about the practice.
What gets the team up out of bed in the morning?
A passion for our patients, for microsurgery and a mission to be the best plastic surgery team in the country.
Dispel a myth about your field:
That plastic surgeons don’t make scars. Untrue! We are just more talented and meticulous at closing wounds. Unfortunately, the scars are sometimes unpredictable.
What are the organizations plans for the future?
To offer our services to more out of state patients, increase awareness of breast reconstruction options, publish our results consistently in surgical journals and continued growth into other areas of San Antonio outside of the Medical Center.
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
The practice has performed over 5,000 breast reconstructions to date. We have extremely high satisfaction rates and have a 99 percent success rate for breast reconstruction outcomes.
