Surgery Center Tour

NorthWest Valley Oral Maxillofacial & Facial Cosmetic Surgery Center

One of our number one goals has always been to offer exceptional patient care in a safe environment. We are pleased to have a state of the art outpatient surgical facility. Our surgical center is modeled after a hospital environment. We have the same type of sterilization, equipment, instruments, anesthesia machines, emergency devices and surgical standards for local hospitals.

Dr. Hammond is board certified and licensed in the state of Arizona to perform oral and maxillofacial and facial cosmetic surgery, IV sedation and general anesthesia. Dr. Hammond and his surgical staff are all basic life support and advanced cardiac life support certified.

Types of Anesthesia

Numerous types of anesthesia are used for various oral and maxillofacial and facial cosmetic surgery procedures. Some surgeries can be performed with local anesthesia or tumescent anesthesia. However, most of our surgical procedures (facial cosmetic surgery, placement of dental implants, removal of impacted wisdom teeth) are performed with conscious sedation /general anesthesia here in our outpatient surgical center.

Office Technology

Many offices perform surgery with anesthesia but do not have anesthesia machines, vital emergency medications, backup power sources, and training staff.  If you’re considering having oral and maxillofacial and/or facial cosmetic surgery in an office surgery center environment, these are important questions to ask.  We are proud to offer our patient’s the latest advances in patient safety and monitoring.
