Our Nursing Staff

We are very proud of our highly-trained and exceptionally-experienced nursing staff. Our operating room and surgical recovery room is staffed by only registered nurses who have undergone rigorous training in surgical nursing. Our OR nurses are graduates of prestigious institutions across Canada, and include a previous head of Plastic Surgical Nursing at William Osler Hospital, a previous head of the Ontario Nurses’ Association (ONA) and a prior member of Women’s College Hospital Board of Directors. Several of them continue to work in the operating room at Trillium Health Centre in Mississauga when they are not in our OR. Together they make for a wonderful team, and can offer the best support and care to our patients before, during and after surgery.

We also have highly qualified injection nurses on our staff in Toronto and Mississauga, who have trained with all the major injection companies including Allergan and Medicis®. They work alongside Dr. Weinberg learning the most up-to-date and safest injection techniques and have attended the top injection meetings and educational sessions.
