Dr. Gus Galante’s plastic surgery center in Northwest Indiana placed second in the category of Best Cosmetic Surgery Center in 2014, chosen by online voters in The Times of Northwest Indiana’s annual contest.
Schererville, Indiana (May 2014) — Dr. Gus Galante (www.galantemd.com) has been selected as among the best in the field of plastic surgery by readers of The Times of Northwest Indiana. After serving patients in the region for more than 2 decades, Dr. Galante says, he feels proud that they have honored him by voting for his practice in the Best Cosmetic Surgery Center category.
“It is so gratifying to win this kind of award because it is really a ‘people’s choice’ award,” he says. “People visited the voting website simply because they wanted to show appreciation for our practice — that’s quite an honor.”
The newspaper holds the Best of the Region contest annually. It encourages area residents to nominate and vote for their favorite businesses in a wide range of categories, from medicine to dining and entertainment. Dr. Galante’s practice placed second in the cosmetic surgery rankings.
The board-certified plastic surgeon says his practice’s success can be partially attributed to its commitment to education, patient care, philanthropy and community involvement. Dr. Galante is active not only in well-regarded groups such as The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, but also in countless charities including Breast Oasis, the South Shore Arts, Cancer Resource Centre, and St. Jude House. Dr. Galante is also a co-founder of the cycling event Hospice Hustle, and he and his staff volunteer at the Hammond Community Center at the holidays each year. He says his staff is undoubtedly a large reason patients appreciate his practice.
“We have a team approach at our practice, and all our staff members are as skilled as they are warm and kind,” Dr. Galante says. “People leave the office feeling like they have really been well cared for by each person they came in contact with, no matter how large or small their procedure.”
Dr. Galante performs a full spectrum of plastic surgeries for the face, breasts and body, including popular procedures such as tummy tuck and eyelid surgery. In Northwest Indiana, his plastic surgery practice has earned a reputation for providing the level of care that one would expect from a major medical center, but in a smaller community environment.
“We like to provide the best of new innovations as well as time-proven techniques. Our patients appreciate that they don’t have to travel to Chicago or another major center to get remarkable care and results,” Dr. Galante says. “This new honor from readers of The Times confirms that appreciation, and motivates us to continue striving for excellence.”
