Plastic Surgery at Indiana University (IU) Health North and West Hospitals

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

It isn’t very often that a large corporation takes on a complete name change. This is particularly rare in the medical world with a hospital system. But that is exactly what is happening this month in the Clarian Health System. Since 1997, Clarian Health has existed as a core set of downtown Indianapolis hospitals, Methodist, University, and Riley Hospital for Children. Since its inception it has also acquired over a dozen hospitals around the state, creating the largest statewide hospital system and the only one closely aligned with the Indiana University School of Medicine.

Despite having multiple locations across the state, however, the Clarian name doesn’t resonate with much familiarity outside of Indianapolis. After undertaking a large market research study, Clarian is launching an historic name change to more clearly define its mission and statewide focus.  Clarian will change its name to Indiana University Health effective this month. Indiana University Health will better identify Clarian’s unique brand of nationally recognized health care, reinforce its partnership with Indiana University and the IU School of Medicine, which provides patients with access to innovative research and treatments, and better reflect the breadth of its mission. Each and every hospital in the system will change their names as well with Indiana University (IU) Health preceding the hospital location in most cases.

As I have two plastic surgery practices in suburban Clarian locations, this name will affect the two hospitals where these facilities exist. My northside Indianapolis location at Clarian North Medical Center in Carmel will change its name to Indiana University (IU) Health North Hospital. My westside Indianapolis location at Clarian West Medical Center in Avon will change its name to Indiana University (IU) Health West Hospital.


While a hospital name change can initially be confusing for patients, the practice phone numbers (IU Health North 317.706.4444, IIU Health West 317.217.2200), the website (www.eppleyplasticsurgery.com) and the email address, info@eppleyplasticsurgery.com will remain the same. It will take some time before GPS locaters will be able to identify the hospital locations by these new names however.

As the Clarian name fades away and the Indiana University Health name emerges, we at Eppley Plastic Surgery look forward to providing plastic surgery procedures, innovations and service that is commensurate with this new bold vision.

Sunday, May 30th, 2010

Since the release of the iphone in 2007, over 50 million units have been commercially sold. One of its many features has been the availability of third-party applications which were launched in mid-2008 and now has well over 200,000 approved by Apple. These apps have diverse functionalities, one of the most common is that of reference. Medical reference apps are particularly popular and hundreds of them exist.

Plastic surgery apps for the iphone have lagged behind the rush for medical reference apps. Only a handful exist, some of which are reference and others which are more like games with photo uploading and limited morphing features.

Besides frank information, one of the features of the Ask My Cosmetic Surgeon app is the ability to be directed to a link where questions can be asked to Dr. Eppley.

Eppley Plastic Surgery at IU Health North and West Hospitals

Since the opening of IU Health West Hospital in Avon, Indiana in 2004 and IU Health North Hospital in Carmel, Indiana in 2005, Eppley Plastic Surgery opened dedicated offices to plastic surgery and spa therapies  in these hospitals. Dr. Barry Eppley brings his extensive experience from Indiana University where he has performed thousands of life-changing operations on adults and children. Dr. Eppley has tremendous experience in the reconstruction of facial birth defects and injuries which translates well into aesthetic reshaping of facial features, such as in rhinoplasty, and reversing the effects of facial aging in procedures such as facelifts, browlifts, and blepharoplasty surgery. Dr. Eppley performs body contouring procedures as well including breast augmentation, lifts, and reductions, liposuction, tummytucks, and major body reshaping after bariatric surgery.

What Dr. Eppley really likes is the atmosphere of the IUI Health North and IU Health West locations which fits well with his relaxed and personalized style of patient relationships. Taking the time with patients to understand their needs and desires and develop a treatment plan specific to their goals is a major part of Dr. Eppley’s approach to plastic surgery. According to Dr. Eppley……the patient’s problem is what they see……and a good result is what makes the patient happy. Dr. Eppley sees patients six days a week, including Saturdays, at the IU Health North and IU Health West locations.
