Jeff Baker

ASC Director

Jeff received his dual degree in biology and nursing. His work experience started as an Anesthesia Technician in a Main OR and continued through nursing school. His first RN job was in an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) PACU where he cross-trained in Pre-Op and IV sedation for GI and Pain Management procedures. Jeff then moved to CO and worked in the ICU for a year and realized he prefers to be in ASCs. While doing IV sedation for Pain Management procedures, he then had the chance to learn to circulate in the OR. A few years later, he became the OR Charge Nurse for another few years, then helped open a new ASC as the Director of Nursing. An opportunity presented itself to be an Administrator for another ASC, so he moved into that role and also fulfilled the Director of Nursing role. Here at CPSC, he enjoys assisting patients through their self-care journey in a meaningful way, since the Clinic is attached to the ASC, and he gets to see patients multiple times throughout the next year to see how they’re doing. Jeff shares, “They’re not just our patients, but they’re our family. We get to know each other’s lives and really connect to help make the experience a great one.”

In Jeff’s spare time, he enjoys home/auto maintenance and spends most of his time with his wife and two boys going on different experiences. Jeff’s Top 3 “Bucket List” items – travel to Europe and some tropical places with my family and have a place in the mountains to go play on the weekends.

At Colorado Plastic Surgery Center, patients are offered an extensive array of advanced treatments for the face, breast, and body. Dr. Slenkovich has many years’ experience performing rhinoplasty and facelifts in Denver, and he is regarded as one of the best Denver breast augmentation surgeons. He also specializes in sophisticated body contouring procedures and has helped numerous tummy tuck and liposuction Denver patients realize their dreams of beautifully sculpted torso appearance.

This is the only office I would go to! Great staff and great people to work with… a thoroughly wonderful team.
