Joint Plastic and Hand Surgery at IU Health North Hospital
Over the past twenty-five years, I have had the opportunity to operate on hundreds of facial trauma patients and repair thousands of facial fractures. I have done so many over the years that I was a co-author on a major 1000 page textbook on facial trauma entitled, Maxillofacial Trauma and Esthetic Facial Reconstruction. Despite this extensive experience, I have never had the opportunity to do a facial fracture repair like I did last week at IU Health North Hospital in Carmel, Indiana.
I was asked to see a patient who fell at home while working and sustained fractures of his wrist and his face. When I saw the patient, his right side of his face was terribly swollen and his hand and wrist were in a cast. Working with an Orthopedic Surgeon, we coordinated a surgery for later that week in which we could repair both problems during the same surgery. Normally, surgeons may do their procedures during the same operation but rarely are surgeries performed concurrently at the same time. (we surgeons are territorial and like our space!) In an one and half-hour operation, this patient had his wrist and four facial bones repaired, not only saving him from having to undergo two separate surgeries on different days but cutting the normal time in surgery for these problems in half!
This joint effort provided a great service to the patient from which he was deeply appreciative. While many complain about the inefficiency of modern medicine, this surgery case reminds me of its many benefits as well.
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.
Dr. Barry Eppley is an extensively trained plastic and cosmetic surgeon with more than 20 years of surgical experience. He is both a licensed physician and dentist as well as double board-certified in both Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. This training allows him to perform the most complex surgical procedures from cosmetic changes to the face and body to craniofacial surgery. Dr. Eppley has made extensive contributions to plastic surgery starting with the development of several advanced surgical techniques. He is a revered author, lecturer and educator in the field of plastic and cosmetic surgery.
