Southern Surgical Arts Gives Back through Chattanooga’s Project Access to Help Low-Income, Uninsured

Southern Surgical Arts’ surgeons recently committed to seeing area patients throughout the year with a new partnership with Project Access. This program makes health care available to low-income, uninsured residents of Hamilton County. Project Access is coordinated by the Medical Society of Chattanooga & Hamilton County and the Medical Foundation. It brings together doctors, hospitals, medical schools, community clinics, the Hamilton County health department, and many other partners all for a common goal. This goal is to improve the health and well-being of the people of Chattanooga and Hamilton County.

While cosmetic surgery procedures are typically elective in nature, and our practice is 100% cosmetic focused, giving back is an important part of Southern Surgical Arts’ philosophy. Dr. Deal and Dr. Nease completed many years of medical and surgical training and have board certifications including general surgery, otolaryngology-head and neck surgery, facial plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery. They give back to our community by treating urgent medical conditions or traumatic injuries that effect the patient’s aesthetic appearance and/or self confidence.
