2 Rooms in 2020

Double your Cataract Surgery Capacity with Surgical Direct Inc

Are you tired of capacity limitations (as well as efficiency) during cataract days in your OR? Often times it’s only possible to have 1 room operational for cataracts because you simply don’t have enough equipment to pull it off efficiently. It also can be a logistical challenge due to supply demands and staffing. But the truth is, there are many OR teams (perhaps even yours) that wish they could run 2 rooms on cataracts days, but simply don’t have the means to do it.

Here’s some season’s cheer for you! Not only does Surgical Direct make it possible to set up 2 rooms, but we also bring knowledge, efficiency, and support to your OR that makes 2 room days even more efficient than if you tackled them on your own.

Go from 1 room to 2 rooms with Surgical Direct and double your Cataract day capacity.

1) Capital is a NON-issue

SDI creates the pathway of least resistance for you to gain access to the latest cataract technology (enough for 2 fully-operational rooms in your OR) at no capital expense. Equipment is delivered to your OR on the day of surgery by our highly trained support team members…which brings us to our next point.

2) Double your case-turnover and in-case support

Surgical Direct not only provides enough equipment for both rooms, but also provides two highly-trained SDI team members who deliver the equipment and help throughout the day. SDI coordinators are intensively trained and certified to assist with machine settings, setup and tear-down, room-turnover, and supply chain requests.

3) Half your Inventory Hours: Case Supplies & Lens Inventory

Along with equipment, Surgical Direct’s Mobile Cataract Service provides both the facility and surgeon all the case supplies they need to do their job (minus drugs). Case disposables, instruments, and lenses are meticulously packed prior to surgery day with our detailed pack-out lists, tailored to the surgeon and facility’s requests. This includes lens picks, which we coordinate directly with the surgeon’s office, and are triple-checked before arrival.

At Surgical Direct, our mission is to reduce the stress of surgery and create clear pathways to efficiency and success for all. There are many details and benefits that we offer (too many to list here) that we believe will create a meaningful partnership of success for surgeon, facility, and patients alike.

Don’t hesitate to get started! With all that is on the horizon, now is a great time to upgrade from 1 room to 2. Surgical Direct gives you the means to do it!

Adding a Second OR For Cataracts

In the world of cataract surgery, safety is the #1 priority of all OR staff and surgeons during eye-day. In our 20+ years of experience in offering premium Mobile Cataract Services, we’ve realized that a very close #2 priority on eye day is efficiency. Everyone involved (surgeon, staff, and patients) are busy people with things to do, places to go, and people to see (no pun intended). This makes surgical efficiency a high-priority for cataracts, and one of the best ways to increase your efficiency is adding a second room. However, for many, there are obstacles to running multiple ORs for cataracts, but Surgical Direct can make a 2nd room service possible for you and your community.

We have learned the increasing value a surgeon places on a streamlined 2nd room operation in ophthalmology, and by inviting Surgical Direct into your picture, together we can accomplish a larger reach of service to your community. The results are clear! Surgeons are pleased, your staff is supported, and now your facility is maximizing available OR time without costing you more capital.

Adding a Second OR for Cataracts is easy with Surgical Direct.


The beauty of partnering with Surgical Direct’s Mobile Cataract Service is that limitations are reduced dramatically and possibilities and options are increased.

 1) We provide double the equipment.

Since the facility no longer needs to purchase phaco machines, microscopes, and hand-pieces, confining your surgeon to one room is no longer an issue. On 2 room days, we provide all the equipment required for both rooms to operate safely and efficiently. This saves the facility upwards of 6 figures in capital investment, maintenance, repairs, and other unexpected costs.

2) We provide double the support.

Having enough equipment to have 2 rooms running doesn’t always make the day more efficient. The team of people that work in the room is what does! Having the right amount of support staff is vital to keep the day moving efficiently. That’s why we provide 1 technician per room on 2 room days. This increases the manpower, technical support, and teamwork in each room so that those 8-15 minutes cases stay 8-15 minutes. We also help with turnover, so that the surgeon can bounce between rooms without waiting. A day that stays on schedule, is a GOOD day!

3) We provide double the supplies.

2 room days typically means a lot of cases. A lot of cases means a lot of supplies. No matter the surgeon and his/her supply preferences, 12-20 cases in one day calls for a large amount of inventory. Surgical Direct provides all inventory needs for your cataract cases (except for meds). For 2 room days, we fill our cargo vans (sometimes to the roof) with equipment and supplies. Think of the shelf space you’ll be saving. Think of the time you’ll be saving in inventory if you didn’t have to order, receive, unpack, and shelf all of that inventory every time the surgeon is scheduled. And since we are on the subject of inventory, we must mention lenses. If the surgeon is doing 15 cases, you’ll also need about 45 lenses (primary + 2 backup) ready and accounted for before the day starts. With Surgical Direct as a part of your team, you don’t stock case supplies or manage lens consignments. We bring it all with us morning of, and at the end of the day, take all the excess back with us.

So here’s the recap.

Surgical Direct is your partner for all cataract surgical needs for 1 or 2 room days. We provide the latest ophthalmic technology available directly to your OR on surgery day including phaco machines, microscopes, disposables, lenses, and highly-trained technical support. Surgical Direct is the solution you’ve been looking for to streamline your surgical and operational efficiency. Don’t just take our word for it, read through our testimonials and hear it from our customers.
