Pierre Brassard, M.D., Offers Top-of-the-Line Care in Canada for Patients Worldwide

San Diego, CA, August 30, 2010 --( Satori World Medical, the leader in medical travel, adds world-renowned gender reassignment and plastic surgeon Pierre Brassard, M.D. to its prestigious network.

Canadian surgeon Brassard brings nearly three decades of experience in plastic surgery and performs more than 200 gender reassignment procedures each year. Known as one of the world’s leading physicians in the field of gender reassignment procedures, Brassard joins Satori World Medical’s physician network to give greater access to patients across the globe.

“At Satori, one of our pillars of excellence is to align ourselves with only the best of the best in health care,” said Steven Lash, president and CEO, Satori World Medical. “Dr. Brassard is widely known as one of the top physicians in his field and we are delighted that he has joined our network. All of our physicians are U.S./U.K. or equivalently board certified and trained, and are experts in their field.”

Lash added that Brassard’s credentials speak for themselves; he is one of the leaders in his field.

Brassard obtained his medical degree with honors, finishing first in his class, in 1985 from the University of Laval. In 1989, he completed his residency in plastic surgery at the University of Montreal and went on to do his fellowship in microsurgery at Maisonneuve-Rosemont and at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.

Prior to dedicating his medical practice to a purely private one, Brassard was an attending doctor at l’Hotel Dieu de Quebec where he held a position as professor, at l’Hotel Dieu de Levis and at l’Hotel Dieu de St-Jerome as chief of staff. He is presently director of the Metropolitan Center of Plastic Surgery.

“Patients come to us from all over the world for procedures because of the quality of the results, the unmatched pre-op and post-op care that makes our center unique, the ability to acquire and master the after-care before they go home, and the warm relationships we build with them,” said Brassard. “I am committed to upholding the highest quality of medical care in the world, which is why I have joined Satori’s network of physicians. Our principles in excellence in health care are perfectly aligned.”

Satori World Medical provides access to its global network of board-certified doctors and worldwide centers of excellence through a high-quality integrated program, which is easily added to any health plan, reducing the costs of surgical procedures by an average of 40-80 percent when compared to the same procedures performed in a U.S. hospital. Its business model is specifically designed to deliver high-quality health care services, share the tremendous cost savings with plan sponsors and their employees and to coordinate all medical and travel services for individuals who need care.
