Janet K Turkle MD – Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Indianapolis and Carmel Indiana

 

asps member logoWhen choosing a plastic surgeon, it is very important to investigate their credentials. Dr. Turkle is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. This is the only plastic surgery board certification that is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties–the organization that regulates board certification for physicians.

Doctors who are members have extensive training in the field of cosmetic, plastic and reconstructive surgery of the entire body. This is important because any doctor, regardless of training, can perform cosmetic surgery – there are no restrictions or laws against this.

According to the American Board of Plastic Surgery, a plastic surgeon that is board certified:

  • has completed at least five years of surgical residency training after medical school, including at least two years in plastic surgery
  • has passed comprehensive cosmetic and reconstructive surgery exams
  • is qualified to perform cosmetic and reconstructive procedures – everything from liposuction and facelifts to intricate wound repair.

Additionally these doctors are required by the Board to complete a rigorous recertification process to assure they are providing the highest level of patient care. Physicians who perform cosmetic surgery without being certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery are held to none of these standards.

Keep in mind that many doctors say they are “board certified”, but in actuality the board is not plastic surgery, or it is a non-recognized board. If you have any questions about the authenticity of board certification for plastic surgeons, please visit www.plasticsurgery.org.

When you choose Dr. Turkle as your plastic surgeon, you can be assured she has completed an approved medical education program and has had examinations designed to assess her knowledge, experience and the skill in the practice of plastic surgery. This is necessary to provide you the very highest quality of plastic surgery for your face and body.
