Many small procedures can be performed in the procedure rooms of Dr. Cross’s office. For larger procedures, however, including those that require anesthesia, Dr. Cross prefers to operate in the safety of a fully supported facility. He does not believe in doing large operations in the office. Cosmetic plastic surgery procedures are amazingly safe, but there is no reason to cut corners or to take chances operating in the office where resources are limited. Dr. Cross operates within both the University of Pennsylvania and Main Line Health Systems. He has an operative team at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, Lankenau Hospital, and Bryn Mawr Hospital.
