Apex Surgical Facility
Our surgeons opened their own surgical facility in December 2010. They wanted to be able to provide their Denver cosmetic plastic surgery patients with access to state-of-the-art equipment and a highly-trained surgical staff.
To schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Wolfe, Dr. Steinwald, or Dr. Vath to discuss cosmetic plastic surgery in Denver, simply call (720) 279-1926 or request your consultationyour consultation online.
Apex Surgical Facility is accredited by the AAAHC (Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Centers). This is a voluntary accreditation that holds our staff and surgical equipment to the highest standards – ensuring our patients' safety in the OR as well as allowing us to provide superior surgical outcomes. Apex is also a class-C operating room. This means we are equipped for major surgical procedures that require general or regional block anesthesia and support of vital bodily functions. All equipment is tested and serviced on a strict schedule. A hospital-grade generator supplies uninterrupted power to the facility in the case of a power failure. Patient safety is at the core of everything that we do.
Our surgical facility is solely dedicated to cosmetic surgery, and all staff members have years of experience in supporting the unique needs of aesthetic patients. We understand that maintaining your privacy is of the utmost importance. Once you are checked in for surgery, you may wait in our cozy, private surgical lounge. When you exit the building after your procedure is complete, you will leave by way of a private exit.
About Our Anesthesia Providers
At Apex, we use only board-certified anesthesiologists. Dr. Brian Hopkins is our head anesthesiologist and the medical director of Apex Surgical Facility. Dr. Hopkins received both his BA and MD from the University of Kansas. He interned at Resurrection Medical Center in Chicago before completing his anesthesia residency at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. He is board certified in anesthesiology. Dr. Hopkins was a partner physician with South Denver Anesthesiologists, P.C. for 12 years where he served on the Board of Directors as well as various subcommittees. He has volunteered his time on two medical mission trips to Cambodia, and most recently worked as an anesthesiologist during a six month sabbatical in New Zealand in 2014. He has worked extensively with Dr. Wolfe and Dr. Vath both at Denver West Surgery Center and at the Apex Surgical Facility.
At times, our caseload requires that we use additional anesthesia providers. In these instances, we utilize physicians from Physician Anesthesia Services (PAS). PAS provides anesthesiology services with the highest level of integrity and professionalism. When requesting an anesthesiologist for surgical cases at Apex, we make sure they have extensive experience in providing anesthesia to aesthetic patients.
