Physician Advisory Board
Surgical practice is in a constant state of change: new procedures are developed, new technology is invented, and services come and go. To help shape high quality, useful surgical offerings, Surgeo has assembled advisors with specific relevant knowledge and skill. These advisors help to define the most useful surgical procedures and the composition of the services packages Surgeo brings to you. They also help to define surgeon qualification criteria and identify and recruit qualified surgeons into the Surgeo nertwork.
Our practicing advisors are among the most experienced physicians and surgeons in the world. Many have been at the forefront of medical research, development, and education for decades. They have invented techniques, designed devices, taught students and fellow surgeons, run academic training programs, run clinical trials, and published original, peer reviewed research. They believe that patients deserve quality, value, convenience, and choice.
