Alisha and Ashlee are surgical technologists that assist Dr. Sorokin in the operating room. They are very important to patients and have each performed thousands of surgeries with Dr. Sorokin. In addition, since both Alisha and Ashlee get to know our plastic surgery patients in advance of the surgery date, they are familiar faces in the operating room on the day of surgery. Christine is our medical assistant here to help with injectables and postoperative recovery!
Our anesthesia staff are board certified anesthesiologists based out of Virtua Hospital. They bring their knowledge of critical care from the hospital but also share an enthusiasm and experience with plastic surgery patients. Dr. Frank Knoll, Dr. Heng Jiang, Dr. Kathleen Morgan, Dr. Michael Pascarella, Dr. Rajiv Lingaraju, and Dr. Ryan Santos take turns rotating through our AAAASF operating room. These board certified anesthesiologists are based out of Virtua Hospital in Voorhees and Marlton and when not on-call overnight at the hospital provide excellent care for our patients.
