Do you have hospital privileges to perform surgery?

In order to obtain hospital privileges, a plastic surgeon’s training and competency must be evaluated by the hospital review committee.

After careful considerations, Dr. Oxley has been awarded this privilege to perform surgeries at Royal Columbian Hospital, Surrey Memorial Hospital, Peace Arch Hospital, and Eagle Ridge Hospital.  Only certain procedures require hospitalization, with the remaining procedures performed at the surgical center.
