I made the video above to show you a complete tour of my podiatry office which includes my office-based surgical suite. Read below for more details.
So let’s start.
Now you don’t need a big, fancy 5,000 or 6,000 square feet office. What I’m showing is 1,800 square feet which I created for a foot and ankle practice with a built-in surgical suite.
Primary Treatment Rooms
The Surgical Suite
The most important things for me are a mini C-arm and an Osada drill set for cutting bones and shaving bones. There’s also a digital pneumatic tourniquet but I don’t even use it anymore. Most MIS procedures are performed without tourniquets, avoiding possible vascular complications. Here’s a traditional digital x-ray setting.
Benefits of having an office-based surgical suite
Everything’s done right here. When patients come to my office, they enjoy so many benefits:
- They don’t have to go to the hospital or a surgery center.
- They save lots of money for coinsurance.
- They don’t have to pay facility usage to a hospital or surgery center.
- They enjoy comfort conveniences.
- They don’t have to meet new people.
In another setting, patients usually have to go to a pre-op room along with many other patients. They have to wait for their turn to go to war then come out to the recovery room. Instead, they come here to the same office and the same staff that they’re used to. They just walk in from the treatment room, get the surgery done and go back to the treatment room.
The treatment room works as a recovery room. Most MIS procedures are done using local anesthetic, twilight sedation. But most of them can be done locally which is another plus. So patients don’t have to worry about complications from sedation anesthesia.
If you want to have an office-based surgical suite like mine join my MIFAS Accelerator 2.0 Program
As I said, I have a very flexible schedule: three-and-a-half days a week. Most of the time when I don’t see patients, I basically talk to doctors.
With my MIFAS Accelerator 2.0 program, I meet with my current clients every week on Friday evenings. We do live coaching calls to discuss their surgery cases and their minimally invasive surgical skills. We also discuss office-based surgical suites like the one I showed you to help them set up their own custom layout. A lot of documentation is very important for office-based surgery which I provide during the coaching program.
