MobiSurg® Allows Patients to Be Treated in the Comfort of Their Own Doctor’s Office
Special needs and hard-to-treat patients can now undergo routine diagnostic tests without having to rely on hospitals or surgery centers
March 6, 2012 - PRLog -- Laguna Hills, CA – Special needs and hard-to-treat patients – both children and adults – can now undergo routine and even minimally invasive diagnostic testing without incurring the high costs of hospitals or surgery centers. MobiSurg®, a new accredited and uniquely affordable mobile anesthesia and patient care provider, now allows patients who have difficulty undergoing routine diagnostic procedures to do so in the privacy and convenience of their own doctor’s office by bringing everything needed right to the chosen location.
“Thousands upon thousands of diagnostic tests are performed every day in the U.S.,” says Shar Alikhani, MD. “These procedures are simple to perform in healthy, cooperative people, but there is a large patient population who has difficulty with even the most routine tests. Adults and children with special needs such as attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, Down syndrome, autism, developmental delay or Cerebral Palsy can benefit greatly by using MobiSurg® for even the most routine diagnostic tests. The services provided by MobiSurg® can also be helpful for geriatric patients who have associated medical problems like Parkinson’s, dementia, senility or Alzheimer’s. All of these patients may have difficulty sitting or lying still, suffer from chronic pain, high anxiety or have certain phobias to needles or enclosed spaces, but with MobiSurg®, they can receive safe, quality anesthesia and undergo their required diagnostics in their own doctor’s or radiologist’
Continues Dr. Alikhani, “The list of diagnostic tests that can be performed with MobiSurg® includes hearing/auditory tests, MRI, EEG, EKG, dental cleaning, lacrimal duct probing, and many others. With diagnostic tests costing Americans more than $250 billion per year, MobiSurg® offers a welcome change to patients and insurance companies alike. MobiSurg® allows patients to avoid the costs of hospitals and other associated fees. Because we bring the whole environment of care with us, our clients can save upwards of 50% off standard hospital and surgery center costs.”
MobiSurg® is the only accredited mobile surgical provider able to administer the same hospital-grade anesthesia to kids, adults and special needs patients – in any environment. MobiSurg® brings everything right to your door, including the anesthesiologist, medical staff, medications, and certified monitoring equipment and emergency evacuation plan, making undergoing surgical procedures safe, affordable and hospital-free.
“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.”
MobiSurg® brings a board-certified anesthesiologist and all the support staff and hospital-grade equipment directly to the doctor, enabling them to perform a host of common and even specialized surgeries all within the walls of their own office and treatment rooms. Among the surgical specialties MobiSurg® can support, are: ENT, Ophthalmology, Urology (hernia repair, circumcision, vasectomy, cystoscopy), Podiatry (all podiatric procedures which can be performed in office, including bunionectomy, removal of foreign body, hammertoes, neuromas, ingrown toenails, club feet), Orthopedics (carpal tunnel release, excision of extra digits in children, casting), Radiology (MRI in children and anxious adults or patients with special needs, CT scans in same, breast biopsy), Plastic Surgery (blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, dermatologic procedures, breast implants, laser surgery, tattoo removal), and OB/GYN (tubal ligation, vaginal rejuvenation, excision of cysts, biopsies).
