Hospital da Plástica has a certified ICU (Intensive Care Unit), equipped to assist post-operative emergencies.
A staff of intensive care physicians remains 24 hours a day on duty for immediate assistance. The ICU physicians on duty routinely visit inpatients, double-checking on their clinical exam (and EKG monitors) and providing laboratory testing when needed. This is an unique and above-average safety precaution provided by HOSPITAL DA PLÁSTICA, as compared to other plastic surgey institutions in Brazil.
The ICU and its staff of intensive care physicians are under the supervision of Dr. Marcelo Vieira Gomes, former Chief-of-Staff for more than 16 years at Clínica São Vicente da Gávea — a well-known general hospital in Rio de Janeiro.
