SPECIAL NEEDS KIDS & ADULTS CAN NOW UNDERGO MRIs AND SCANS WITHOUT GOING TO A HOSPITAL OR SURGERY CENTER
MobiSurg Makes Radiology Easy, Convenient & Safe – Anywhere
Laguna Hills, CA – MobiSurg, a revolutionary new mobile concept in patient care and anesthesia, brings accredited radiology and MRI compatible anesthesia machines, monitors and equipment that can transform any existing radiology center into a facility capable of providing hospital-grade anesthesia. This innovation allows any free-standing radiology center new options in providing care for special needs children and hard-to-treat adults. Traditionally, young children and children and adults with special needs or conditions such as Autism, Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s, had to go to a hospital in order to receive safe, anesthesia for radiologic procedures. Now with MobiSurg these same hard-to-treat patients can undergo invasive and even simple radiologic procedures inside the comfort and convenience of any local radiology center.
MobiSurg is the only accredited mobile medical-surgical provider able to administer the same hospital grade anesthesia and perioperative care to kids, adults and special needs patients – in any environment. MobiSurg brings everything right to the radiology center, including a board certified anesthesiologist, anesthesia equipment, monitoring devices, and many other equipment and supplies, making undergoing radiology procedures safe, affordable and hospital-free.
Says Dr. Alikhani, “For years, hospitals were the only places patients requiring anesthesia for radiologic procedures could go as they were the only locations where anesthesia could be administered. With MobiSurg, patients can now undergo a host of radiologic procedures that used to require a hospital visit, right in the comfort and convenience of their local radiology centers – saving them thousands of dollars, hours of travel and down time, as well as time spent waiting for test results. And the anesthesia provided at MobiSurg is delivered with the same safety and care that can be expected in the hospital. MobiSurg truly offers individualized attention in a more personal setting.”
Dr. Alikhani continues, “MobiSurg is a huge convenience for patients and families. There is often so much fear and apprehension for parents whose children must undergo procedures involving anesthesia. Now these kids can have safe, hospital grade anesthesia in a friendly, calm atmosphere close to their home, with their parents by their side, and can wake up in their parents’ arms instead of in an unfamiliar hospital recovery room. In addition, patients and parents can often get their test results much faster since they do not have to navigate the bureaucracy of a hospital. This calms nerves and makes for a more relaxed process for radiologic procedures.”
Radiologists and insurance companies all across Southern California are recognizing the safety, value and convenience of MobiSurg. “Even simple procedures involving anesthesia in a hospital setting may cost as much as $10,000 or more,” says Dr. Alikhani. “MobiSurg eliminates these high costs and makes so much financial sense for all parties involved – it really is the wave of the future.” MobiSurg is also an affordable alternative when insurance companies will not cover the cost of anesthesia-based procedures. Doctors appreciate the convenience, time and cost-saving benefits of MobiSurg, too.
“At MobiSurg, we handle all the details for you,” Dr. Alikhani says. “Our mobile surgical supply vehicle is outfitted with the latest hospital-grade equipment and supplies. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and bring all medical staff, assistants, medications and equipment with us directly to your doctor’s office. We also provide a detailed floor plan and emergency evacuation plan for every location, as well as an emergency lighting system, battery back up system, state inspected fire extinguisher, wireless communication system, back up monitors and oxygen delivery service and sterile supplies.”
