AAAASF is considered the “Gold Standard” for outpatient surgical facility accreditation and was the first agency to begin accrediting outpatient surgical facilities.  AAAASF is the largest non-for-profit organization for accreditation of ambulatory surgical facilities in the United States. The JKS Surgical Facility is an AAAASF Accredited Facility since its conception.  This facility is able to address all needs of a patient having surgery, whether its local anesthesia, general anesthesia or monitored anesthesia, from preoperative care and testing, surgery itself, and post-operative care.  This facility is capable of handling emergency issues and the JKS clinical staff is fully licensed under the American Heart Association for the Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support Program including the use of CPR & AED treatments. The JKS Surgery Institute has the capacity to stabilize a patient and has a transfer agreement in place with the nearby hospitals to transfer patients as deemed necessary for further treatment and care. The JKS Surgery strives for patient care excellence and patient safety as number one priority.  Dr. Kimberly Short has been credentialed at several Indianapolis hospitals and maintains privileges for all the procedures she performs at her facility.  Dr. Kimberly Short primarily performs and prefers to perform all her procedures at her own facility, JKS Surgery, of course.

Our Anesthesia Group selected to perform anesthesia at the JKS Surgery Institute are all board certified anesthesiologists specializing in outpatient surgery and plastic surgery procedures.  Dr. Short has personally been placed under anesthesia by members of the anesthesia group and admires their technical skills, compassion, and integrity in medicine.  The anesthesiologists granted privileges at JKS Surgery Institute have been personally selected by Dr. Kimberly Short.  Dr. Kimberly Short understands the responsibility held by the anesthesiologist in administering medications to her patients and monitoring their vitals during the procedure and waking her patients following completion of the procedure.  Dr. Kimberly Short understands the risks involved and the difficulty for patients relinquishing “control” to a board certified anesthesiologist and the responsibility granted to this physician.  The board certified anesthesiologists have privileges and are active in practice at the local hospitals as well. The JKS Surgery Institute also has female anesthesiologists available for patients who prefer this option.  Patient comfort and confidentiality are always a priority for our anesthesiologists.  Our anesthesiologists at the JKS Surgery Institute also implement a very good preventative protocol to minimize post-operative nausea.  This anesthesia approach among many allow our patients the most optimal surgical experience possible with attention to every detail.

I would refer Dr.Short to all of my friend and family. She are her staff was very professional and was willing to answer any question that I had. My surgery was a breast augmentation, I was a size A and went to a cup size D. I am very pleased and so happy with the out come. Dr.Short is the best there is. I would never even consider going any place else. *

I came to Dr. Short for a Breast Augmentation and tummy tuck about 3 1/2 years ago. I was a mother of 5 children and had spent the past 15 years giving birth and taking care of kids. Even before the kids though, I struggled with a poochy tummy. I decided for my 40th birthday that I was finally going to do something about it. I searched the internet extensively and finally found Dr. Short. The results she was showing on her website were exactly what I was looking for. I flew out from Washington State for my consultation and immediately liked her and her entire staff. They put me at ease and answered all my questions.

I was thrilled with the results of the surgery. I went immediately from a size 12 to a size 4. I couldn’t believe it. The surgery got me so motivated that I continued to diet and exercise and have now dropped another 13 pounds and now wear a size 0. In addition to the fantastic results, Dr. Short and her staff made me feel like a girlfriend. I felt that they truly understood what my needs were, not just clinically, but from a woman’s perspective. I can’t recommend Dr. Short and her office enough for any cosmetic procedure. Thank you so much. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. *

I went to Dr. Short 2 years ago with an A cup breast size. She gave me a low C cup, and i get compliments on my breasts daily. They are very natural looking and feeling. A lot of people do not even believe me when I tell them I have had breast augmentation. Shes the best and I’m very very pleased with the outcome of the surgery. *

I used Dr.Short for a breast enlargement. I was more then impressed with the results. They did a great job and I recommend her all the time to people who ask for a Dr. I went in with a lot of questions and attended a seminar that helped me feel at ease. The surgery was not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. I was back to normal in no time. The scars left are not even visible unless you look really hard. I highly recommend Dr.Short. They made me feel comfortable by having proper follow up appointments to make sure that everything was ok with surgery. I have nothing bad to say about my whole experience. It is going on three years now and I have had no complications at all. Dr. Short does a great job of giving you a natural look and making sure she keeps the look proportional to your body type. She really does a great job. *
