LOS ANGELES, June 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Prime Surgeons announced today that it is launching its online network of elite master surgeons to provide patients with access to the highest quality of surgical care on-demand. For the first time, Americans now have direct online access to a network of preeminent surgeons whose patients include top athletes, celebrities, and successful professionals. The Prime Surgeons platform provides excellent patient outcomes with fair and transparent pricing.
The number of surgeries in the U.S. is growing rapidly and is expected to increase to 6.5 million in 2016, up from 5.3 million in 2010, according to Datamonitor. At the same time, we will have 46,000 fewer surgeons by 2020. Reputable national publications, such as ProPublica, are already raising awareness of less than desired or poor surgical outcomes. As a result, patients face serious challenges in finding top-level surgeons and getting the high-quality surgical outcomes they seek. Prime Surgeons aims to provide patients with on-demand access to the best care and consistently excellent outcomes exactly when needed.
