Westwood Patient Grateful For Care

elizabeth-usoviczWhen people think of plastic surgery, cosmetic enhancements and elective procedures may come to mind.

For Elizabeth Usovicz, this was not the case.

Elizabeth took a nasty fall in her home that caused a traumatic injury to her face. She was rushed to the emergency room at The University of Kansas Hospital for her initial treatment. The physicians there referred her to The University of Kansas Physicians Plastic Surgery due to the severity and nature of her injuries. Elizabeth's surgical team included Drs. Thurston and Ponnuru.

"The surgery I needed was intricate, and these doctors did a phenomenal job," said Elizabeth.

"Post-surgery, the plastic surgeons addressed all my concerns," said Elizabeth. "I felt well informed about the expected outcomes of my recovery, and my mind was put at ease.

I also underwent non-invasive laser treatments as part of my recovery. These made a significant difference in my appearance!"

Elizabeth recalls her experience as "some of the best care I've ever received."

"After my accident, I thought I would never look normal again," said Elizabeth. "Thanks to the patience and skill of this group, I look and feel like myself again."
