Dosher Memorial Hospital has announced Eric L. Cole, MD, has joined its team of healthcare providers.
After attending Stanford University and Duke University Medical School, Cole trained in plastic surgery and otolaryngology at UNC and Duke. He is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, as well as the American Board of Otolaryngology and is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Plastic surgery is comprised of surgical and non-surgical techniques to treat both the function and appearance of the body or face.
Each year, plastic surgeons perform millions of reconstructive and cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States, according to a spokesperson for the hospital.
Many of these procedures—more than 5 million per year—are necessary to correct abnormalities from congenital defects, surgery or trauma. More than 12 million, however, were considered elective cosmetic surgery performed to reshape normal structures to improve appearance and self-esteem.
Commonly called ear, nose and throat (ENT) physicians, otolaryngology is a medical and surgical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders of the ear, nose and throat.
There will be a free informational session at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 24, in the Dosher Hospital classroom. Cole will present an overview of the most common procedures, including breast augmentation, tummy tucks, facelifts, liposuction and more.
Space is limited; call 371-CARE to register.
