MADISON – UW Health will acquire Madison Plastic Surgery Associates, Ltd., the practice of plastic surgeons Dr. John Hamacher and Dr. Stephen Bernsten.


In business for 40 years, the practice, at 20 S. Park St. in Madison, provides body, skin and facial surgery and related cosmetic treatments.  Its surgeons, Dr. Hamacher and Bernsten, will retire when the acquisition is complete.


The transaction is expected to close on June 29 and will be rebranded as UW Health-Madison Plastic Surgery.


In addition to offering physician consultations for cosmetic procedures, UW Health will create a second location for its skin and body treatments performed by licensed aestheticians.  UW Health intends to add CoolSculpting to its portfolio of services.


Demand for plastic, cosmetic and skin-care procedures continues to grow and new technologies are continually coming into practice.  The purchase will allow UW Health to offer services in downtown Madison in addition to its Transformations practice on Deming Way in Middleton.
