Richard Shane Palmer, MD. is a diplomate of both The American Board of Surgery and The American Board of Phlebology. He is the founder and Medical Director of Surgical Arts of Virginia, Vein and Laser of Virginia and Ageless Innovations Medical Spa.
Dr. Palmer graduated from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in 1995. He completed residency training in general surgery at Yale University Affiliated Waterbury Hospital in Waterbury, Connecticut in 2001. Dr. Palmer moved to the Fredericksburg area and opened his surgical practice in 2004. In 2006 he created Vein and Laser of Virginia, housed in the same building as his surgical practice, in order to offer the latest in varicose vein treatment to his patients. In May 2008, Dr. Palmer completed a rigorous selection process which required documentation of competent vein care and successful completion of a written exam to become certified in vein treatment by the American Board of Phlebology. This allowed him to be inducted into the inaugural class of diplomates of the American Board of Phlebology.
Dr. Palmer has been performing cosmetic surgery since 2006 when he began offering liposuction and body contouring. In 2010 he began offering abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). Dr. Palmer’s training was obtained through The American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the preeminent cosmetic surgery organization offering post graduate training in cosmetic surgery. Through its many meetings, hands-on workshops, and mentorships, Dr. Palmer continues to learn of the latest techniques and to expand his mastery of procedures. We now offer most body and face cosmetic procedures. Dr. Palmer stays current with the latest proven cosmetic procedures such as fat grafting (to face, buttock, hands, and breast) and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Dr. Palmer’s newest interest is in Stem Cell therapy. Dr. Palmer’s philosophy is simple. Cosmetic surgery should be accessible and affordable without sacrificing quality. We think we have accomplished that here at Surgical Arts of Virginia.
Dr. Palmer and his staff moved into their new, expanded office space at 306 Cambridge Street (Route 1) in November 2011. We are proud of our new space and feel that it is a warm, inviting atmosphere for our patients. A newly constructed operative suite with recovery is available to our cosmetic patients. All procedures are performed under IV sedation with local or regional anesthesia. No facility fee is charged and all follow up is included with the procedure fee.
