Successful surgery is the result of a successful partnership between you the patient, the surgeon and his staff, those who help you recover, and the center where your surgery is performed.
For many years, Dr. Reath has chosen to partner with the Physician’s Surgery Center of Knoxville (PSCK), an ambulatory surgery center which is located in the Center for Advanced Medicine next to Ft. Sanders Regional Medical Center.
Fully Licensed and accredited surgery centers like the Physician’s Surgery Center of Knoxville provide a more relaxed and friendly environment in which to have surgery. They are smaller, a bit more intimate and comfortable, a bit quieter, and – perhaps– more private than a hospital. And yet, everything you need to have surgery safely is on hand.
(Interestingly, Physician’s Surgery Center was one of the very first ambulatory surgery centers in the United States.)
Anesthesia is provided and supervised by physicians and nurse anesthetists from Ft. Sanders Regional Medical Center. This is something that Dr. Reath feels strongly about; having a Board-certified anesthesiologist present during his cases. It’s an important layer of patient safety to which he is committed. Many patients are surprised to hear that most office-based operating rooms in Knoxville don’t have anesthesiologists on site. Whether you are having elective cosmetic surgery or any other surgical procedure, it’s a good idea to ask who will be doing your anesthesia.
Dr. Reath has been operating at the Physician’s Surgery Center for over 25 years, and it’s been a good partnership. We consistently get positive feedback about PSCK from patients who have had surgery there. In addition to the conveniences of an outpatient surgery center, it’s the staff at PSCK that makes a difference. You can tell immediately that they love what they do. Many of them have been working with Dr. Reath since the first time he started operating there, not something you will see in many places. And, it makes a difference.
It’s a great synergy. Not only does the staff at the Physician’s Surgery Center work well with Dr. Reath and his staff, they share the same attitude towards taking personal care of his patients. First and foremost is to assure patient safety. But they go above and beyond by being kind, dedicated and truly caring for the patients who come through their doors.
Surgery, even elective cosmetic surgery, is never without some nervousness and anxiety. The folks at the Physician’s Surgery Center of Knoxville know this and always do whatever is necessary to make the process as easy as possible for you. So if you are going to have surgery, this is a safe, comfortable, and excellent place to be.
*This is where you’ll go for your surgery. You’ll come to our office on Northshore Drive for your consultation.

From the BlogWhen I began my training in plastic surgery, liposuction was just being introduced. Since that time, almost 35 years ago, we have seen significant improvements in how liposuction is performed. Recently we have seen the emergence of non-surgical fat reduction. Of all the different technologies that have been developed for this, CoolSculpting is clearly the … Read more
From the BlogBack in 2014, I wrote a popular blog about “gummy bear” or highly cohesive silicone gel (fifth generation) breast implants. Specifically, I addressed how these implants are made and why they weren’t like the gummy bear candies we know and love. It’s time for an update. For breast augmentation surgery, the highly cohesive gel implants … Read more
From the BlogVery recently I had to have surgery on my neck, more specifically an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion at two levels: C 3-4 and C 4-5. Neck problems are very common for surgeons and after 30+ years of operating, I was certainly due. My symptoms came on in a relatively short period of time and the surgery was … Read more
