Date:8/4/2009

AVENTURA, Fla., Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile Surgery International (MSI) has assembled a core team of highly specialized, nationally recognized orthopedic surgeons who have agreed to work with the company in implementation of MSI's surgical business model of Centers of Excellence with Global Convenience(TM). The team will handle a broad range of non-emergency orthopedic procedures domestically and abroad. The team represents a total of 80+ man-years of orthopedic experience, operating in and outside of the United States and includes:

  • Harris Gellman, MD, hand: Dr. Gellman has 25 years of experience, with special interests in complex fractures, nerve disorders, congenital anomalies, and reconstruction following trauma. He is the former co-chief of hand surgery at the University of Miami.

  • Rolando Garcia, MD, MPH, spine: Dr. Garcia has a special interest in spine stabilization and endoscopic discectomy. He was involved in the original trials for artificial lumbar disc replacement and the 4th person in North America to perform it.

  • Jose E. Jaen, MD, knee: Dr. Jaen has over 20 years experience in arthroscopic knee surgery and total knee replacement. He received surgical training at the Gorgas US Army Hospital and Salt Lake City Knee and Sports Medicine Hospital.

  • Robert C. Klapper, MD, hip: Dr. Klapper has over 20 years experience as an orthopedic surgeon. He is director of joint replacement and chief of the Division of Orthopedics at the Cedars-Sinai Orthopedic Center in Los Angeles.

"Mobile Surgery International's orthopedic surgery capabilities are built first and foremost on the experience, focus, and skill level of our surgeons," said Arnon Krongrad, MD, the chief executive officer and medical director of the company. "Our surgeon driven service model combines ability to source cost-effective and appropriate operating room capacity and machinery, sophisticated surgical expertise, and mobility. It offers domestic and foreign payers and uninsured, self-insured, under-insured, and self-directed patients a way to overcome financial, cultural, and geographical barriers to treatment choice and quality."

MSI's orthopedic surgery program complements existing programs in cancer surgery and cardiovascular surgery. MSI offers transparent and fixed package pricing for surgical episodes. Specific procedures can be carried out at institutions in Florida, Kansas, Trinidad, and Mexico. Relationships with additional surgical specialists and host institutions are under development.

In March, 2009 Mobile Surgery International first demonstrated the ability of a mobile surgical model to simultaneously deliver choice, quality, and cost containment to patients. It sent an uninsured American and his American surgical team to Trinidad. In so doing, MSI delivered the treatment the patient chose and cut his cost by more than 50%.

About Mobile Surgery International: MSI offers patients and payers from anywhere in the world surgical choice and quality with cost containment through its Centers of Excellence with Global Convenience(TM). To do this, MSI is cutting overhead, recruiting outstanding surgical talent, and identifying host surgical facilities. It provides differentiating surgical programs and develops custom solutions to administrative needs with minimal regard to geography. Whether the patient comes to the surgeon, the surgeon goes to the patient, or patient and surgeon meet at a mutually convenient location, MSI coordinates all necessary arrangements at a cost agreeable to the patient and/or the payer.
