Nelson Hardiman has more than two decades of experience working with plastic surgeons and plastic surgery practice issues. Our firm has advised plastic surgeons launching new practices, buying into existing ones, and selling (including succession planning and private equity practice acquisition). Plastic surgery practice can involve unique risk issues related to distinct challenges in marketing and managing risk with a sometimes challenging patient population. Nelson Hardiman has worked closely with practitioners to ensure appropriate practice organizational structures and documents, develop optimal patient-facing documentation, and identify issues related to personnel (including physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses, and medical assistants or unlicensed technicians). Nelson Hardiman also has worked extensively on plastic surgery-specific informed consent and risk management issues.
