Florida Surgery Consultants opens its first location in Alachua County at 3760 NW 83rd St Suite 3, Gainesville, FL. It will be their eighth location in the state of Florida. The company started in 2012 and has expanded rapidly with medical clinics in Tampa, Bradenton, Ocala, The Villages, Palm Harbor, Wesley Chapel, Lakeland and now Gainesville. With the expansion, they have added 3 more jobs in Alachua County and now have over 40 staff members.
There are six surgeons in the company, 4 Neurosurgeons, an Orthopedic Surgeon, and a Plastic Surgeon. This group can handle it all with the surgeons they have on staff. The Neurosurgeons specialize in minimally invasive to the most complex spine procedures. Their plastic surgeon is highly skilled and one of the few surgeons that performs microsurgery in the state of Florida.
Most health insurance plans are accepted including auto insurance and workers’ compensation plans. All the facilities are AHCA certified through the state due to the practice being non-physician owned. As a non-physician owned practice the surgeons are all on salary and do not have to worry about anything other than being a physician. This means that the surgeons do not have to push patients to get procedures because there is no financial incentive in doing so.
