AVENTURA, Fla. and GRAND CAYMAN, Cayman Islands, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile Surgery International (MSI) and the Cayman Islands National Insurance Company (CINICO) have reached an agreement for MSI to deliver transparently priced, comprehensive laparoscopic prostate cancer surgery and total knee replacement service packages to CINICO members.
"We reached this agreement because of MSI's focus on surgical quality, as driven by its highly experienced, senior surgical specialists," said CINICO General Manager Carole Appleyard. "As a surgeon-driven company, MSI brings special abilities to surgical quality. We have already seen this in individual cases. We have also seen unparalleled commitment to service: Case management, clinical education, logistical support, and general efficiency. MSI optimizes choice, quality, and cost better than anyone."
"Patients face economic, cultural, and geographical barriers to choice and quality," said MSI CEO Arnon Krongrad, MD. "Working with employers, insurers, and governments reduces administrative burdens at the time of illness. Our agreement with CINICO simplifies logistics for Caymanians and their government."
Mobile Surgery International first proved its surgeon-driven mobile surgical model in 2009 when it sent an American and his American surgical team to Trinidad. In so doing, MSI cut the overall cost for a laparoscopic prostatectomy by 60%, which opened the door to chosen treatment. MSI builds surgeon-driven services with a focus on quality. Total knee replacement, for example, is carried out by highly experienced specialists, using US FDA-approved implants, and aggressive one-on-one physical therapy.
