Edgbaston medical quarter enhanced by new plastic surgery facility

EDGBASTON’S growing medical quarter has been enhanced with the opening of a new facility.

Birmingham plastic surgeon, Jonathan Staiano, has chosen the quarter as the location for a new surgery.

He opened the doors on the new facility, Staiano Plastic Surgery, in Frederick Street last night (Thursday).

Staiano, who specialises in breast reshaping surgery, decided that after 20 years of working in both the NHS and private plastic surgery companies he would set up his own practise to offer his patients more consistency and better aftercare options.

To mark the opening, the 43-year-old consultant has pledged to raise funds for city charity Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer.

Representatives from LFBC attended the launch event, where they were joined by former patients, GPs and members of the local community.

Staiano is to donate 10% from all his private consulting fees to the charity.

He said: “I am thrilled to unveil my fabulous new clinic but this is also about me giving something back having done so much in the NHS and now being in full-time private practice.

“I decided to operate independently because I’m ethically driven and my mission is to make plastic surgery a more caring part of healthcare. Working independently is helping to achieve this.”

He is using the opening event to launch a new initiative aimed at simplifying the consultation process for patients, giving them better information in order they can make a more informed choice about the surgery they are having.

Staiano Plastic Surgery is Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered and a member of BAAPS – the British Association for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons.
