Surgication was conceptualized and created by a practicing orthopedic surgeon who feels that patient education is of paramount importance, but is being put in jeopardy with the evolution of the health care system. Office visits are getting shorter and shorter while the patients’ hunger for accurate information is ever-increasing. The use of the internet for health care information is on the rise, but the validity and reliability of the information is questionable….until now.
“In this day and age where a plethora of health-related information is readily available on the Internet, but often outdated and inaccurate, we should be spending more and more time educating our patients properly about surgical procedures we are recommending. Unfortunately, with the way the health care system is evolving, doctors have less and less time in which provide this service. This can lead to patients being frustrated and not feeling completely informed before surgery. I am hoping that Surgication will help to solve that problem for our patients and allow surgeons to be more efficient in the office as they can use our platform for educational purposes.”
