One of the most powerful things that Surgical Direct’s Mobile Cataract Service model delivers is the ability to expand your options and open the door of what’s possible. Options in technology. Options in case supplies and lens selections. Options in location. Having options means having freedom! Having the freedom to make changes or try new things gives you (the cataract surgeon) the ability to become a better surgeon.
3 ways that having cataract surgery options make you a better surgeon.
1) In Technology.
When it comes to purchasing equipment, there can be a lot of pressure both for surgeons and surgical facilities to pick the absolute right machine. The surgeon needs to be comfortable with the machine and know that it’s the best choice for his/her surgical style (and ultimately the patient’s outcomes). We’ve seen repeatedly that a surgeon (after demoing a machine) decides to move forward and purchase a phaco or microscope, then 2 months later realizes he/she does not like something about the machine. But at this point, it’s too late because the facility has already invested heavily. The surgeon then feels stuck and obligated to use a machine that doesn’t feel right anymore….oftentimes for years. Another common issue in this department is that new technology is released often in ophthalmology. Keeping up can be expensive. Or what if there are 2 cataract surgeons in the same facility that want different machines?
Having the technology options that Surgical Direct provides can reduce the pressure to commit and allow for flexible technology use without heavy investments.
2) In Case Supplies.
We know that as a surgeon, it’s important to have confidence in decision making during a case. You know what is best for the patient and the scenario that you are dealing with. When you need something, it’s important that you are able to access that instrument or supply quickly, and the support team should have even sparsely used supplies within reach for these situations. The problem that we have run into in the field is that oftentimes, multi-specialty surgical facilities will only carry what’s absolutely necessary. This can create an uneasy feeling, not fully knowing if what you need is even in the building!
Having case supply options that Surgical Direct provides reduces worry over inventory management issues. We provide all the supplies you request PLUS backups, including lenses, case supplies, and on-call items like rings, vits, AC lenses, and more.
3) In Surgical Locations.
Partnering with Surgical Direct gives you the option to access the same surgical experience in multiple locations. As a surgeon, your best surgery and surgical outcomes come when you are comfortable in your operating environment. Surgical Direct provides you the option to use the same technology, case supplies, and dependable service in ALL your surgical locations, which can be a powerful growth tool for your practice.
Having options gives you the power to operate the way you want to operate.
