MOBISURG DRIVES HEALTH CARE REFORM WITH MAJOR COST SAVINGS TO BOTH PATIENTS AND INSURANCE COMPANIES
MobiSurg Outpatient Surgery Can Offer Significant Savings for Insurance Companies & Patients
Laguna Hills, CA – MobiSurg is a ground-breaking new concept in mobile outpatient surgery that allows patients the ability to undergo general anesthesia safely and cost-effectively in the comfort and privacy of their own doctor’s office. Undergoing surgery with MobiSurg means patients and their insurance companies can avoid the high cost usually associated with surgeries booked at hospitals or surgery centers. Before the arrival of MobiSurg, hospitals and surgery centers were the only – and very high priced – option. But now MobiSurg enables patients from children to adults, including the elderly and hard-to-treat, the ability to get the surgical procedures they need safely and affordably.
The driving force behind MobiSurg is Dr. Shar Alikhani, a Harvard-trained, board certified anesthesiologist with unparalleled experience in the field and in the area of pediatric anesthesiology. MobiSurg was created to fill a need in the medical world – quality anesthesia for hard-to-treat patients and people seeking convenience, privacy and affordability. MobiSurg offers the same safe, hospital-quality anesthesia and medical services to pediatric patients, high-risk and even difficult-to-treat patients within the comfort, privacy and security of their own doctor’s office. MobiSurg serves all of Southern California, including Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside and San Diego Counties.
Says Dr. Alikhani, “MobiSurg is revolutionizing the cost of health care in the United States. We all know that health care costs associated with outpatient surgery are driving up the cost of healthcare nationwide, but with MobiSurg patients and insurance companies alike are able to save three-to-four fold versus the costs they’d have to face by going the traditional hospital or surgery center route. With MobiSurg, a wide variety of surgical procedures no longer require a hospital visit and can be safely and easily performed right in the comfort and convenience of most doctors’ offices – using the same hospital-grade anesthesia and equipment. And MobiSurg is the only mobile medical surgical provider accredited by the AAAHC (Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc.) which enables us to provide conscious sedation, deep sedation or general anesthesia utilizing the same quality anesthesiologists, staff, and medicines you would receive in a hospital. If more doctors used MobiSurg, we could significantly reduce the cost of health care in those areas we serve,” Dr. Alikhani says.
Continues Dr. Alikhani, “MobiSurg is the perfect solution for patients with limited or no medical coverage, individuals with high deductibles, or for insurance carriers who are struggling with the costs associated with hospital-based and outpatient surgery. For some patients, in-office outpatient surgery with MobiSurg is less than the cost of their insurance deductible. Patients who must pay out-of-pocket for surgical care can now do so much more affordably.”
MobiSurg’s highly-trained and credentialed staff transforms any medical or dental office into the highest-quality surgical suite by bringing the latest, most state-of-the-art medical equipment and supplies, ensuring the safest and most cost-effective outpatient surgical care. “Our safety standards for in-office outpatient surgical procedures meet or exceed most hospital-based and outpatient surgery centers,” says Dr. Alikhani.
MobiSurg brings a board-certified anesthesiologist and all the support staff and hospital-grade equipment directly to the doctor, enabling them to perform a host of common and even specialized surgeries all within the walls of their own office and treatment rooms. Among the surgical specialties MobiSurg can support, are: Ears, Nose & Throat (ear tubes, exams under anesthesia, excision of cysts, ear surgeries), Ophthalmology (cataracts, lacrimal duct probing, blepharoplasty, strabismus surgery), Urology (hernia repair, circumcision, vasectomy, cystoscopy), Podiatry (all podiatric procedures which can be performed in office, including bunionectomy, removal of foreign body, hammertoes, neuromas, ingrown toenails, club feet), Orthopedics (carpal tunnel release, excision of extra digits in children, casting), Radiology (MRI in children and anxious adults or patients with special needs, CT scans in same, breast biopsy), Plastic Surgery (blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, dermatologic procedures, breast implants, laser surgery, tattoo removal), and OB/GYN (tubal ligation, vaginal rejuvenation, excision of cysts, biopsies).
Dr. Shar Alikhani is a board-certified Physician anesthesiologist and former Director of Anesthesiology at Children’s Hospital Orange County at Mission. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Anesthesiologists and trained at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, where he also served as Chief Resident and as a clinical faculty member. He was a Fellow in Pediatric Anesthesia at Children’s Hospital in Boston, the top rated pediatric teaching facility of Harvard Medical School. Dr. Alikhani hopes to make MobiSurg available in more cities across the United States to better serve doctors and patients everywhere.
