Facilities

Dr. Edstrom's office is located in the medical professional building directly adjacent to Rhode Island Hospital and includes an in-office operating suite.

If a hospital setting is determined appropriate or beneficial for a procedure, a pedestrian skywalk connects Dr. Edstrom's office and the Hospital and keeps patients and services all within a three-minute walk.

As Surgeon-in-Chief and Director of the Plastic Surgery Program at Lifespan and Rhode Island Hospital and as Chief of Plastic Surgery at the Brown University School of Medicine and as a practicing surgeon, Dr. Edstrom has developed a close connection with the staff and medical professionals of Rhode Island Hospital.
