As the number of surgeries in the U.S. continues to rise and the number of surgeons rapidly declines, patients will face serious challenges when searching for top-level surgeons and optimal surgical outcomes.
Dr. Gil Tepper, CEO and Founder of Prime Surgeons with more than 25 years of experience, launched Prime Surgeons in an effort to eliminate this problem and meet the growing demand for concierge surgery. “We make it easy for you to find the right surgeon for a specific procedure when you need it. We’re committed to delivering the best care and outcomes in a fair and transparent manner, so you can quickly return to living your life to the fullest,” said Dr. Tepper.
Prime Surgeons currently offers a variety of orthopedic and gynecological procedures, including ACL reconstruction, rotator cuff repair and hysterectomy. It plans to expand its surgical services to include urology, ENT (ear, nose and throat) and begin neurosurgical specialties for spine and tumors.
The company’s proprietary 10-point selection process rigorously qualifies the surgeons in its network in order to ensure that patients receive the highest quality of surgical care. The Prime Surgeons leadership team includes Dr. Tepper, Dr. Daniel Kelly, co-Founder, Dr. Ron Kvitne, Chairman of Sports Medicine, and Dr. David Ghozland, Chairman of Gynecology, all of whom are master surgeons.
Using the most advanced surgical technologies available, Prime Surgeons prides itself on minimally invasive procedures and significantly reduced recovery time. In fact, Dr. Ghozland was one of the first doctors in Los Angeles to conduct a single-incision hysterectomy using robotics. The procedure leaves virtually no visible scar, requires little recovery time and is less painful than a traditional hysterectomy.
“[Robotics] give us the tools to do very complex surgeries, mostly through an outpatient type of service and really allowing for cosmesis to play a role, as well as decreasing post-operative pain and getting people back to work as soon as possible,” said Dr. Ghozland.
Prime Surgeons offers three membership levels: Basic ($99/year), VIP ($495/year) and Concierge ($2,500/quarter). All patients get access to the same network of master surgeons, plus comprehensive, competitive and transparent pricing for all procedures. Each level determines whether patients have statewide, national or global access to Prime Surgeons, how quickly they can schedule appointments, whether they’ll have rehabilitation referral assistance, among other things.
Members can use the web app to book appointments online, communicate directly with the surgical team and find out exactly how much each procedure will cost up front.
“These are doctors that other doctors go to for their care,” said Dr. Kvitne. “We can offer peace of mind at the most critical time in [patients’] lives.”
