L.A. startup looks to extend concierge medicine to surgery

By Samantha Masunaga – June 17, 2016

 

A Los Angeles company is looking to expand the field of concierge medicine to include on-demand surgical care.

Prime Surgeons has launched a beta test of its concierge surgery business in L.A. County.

The group of 16 surgeons will initially specialize in orthopedic sports, spine surgery, gynecology and robotics procedures.

Concierge medicine is a small but growing concept in which doctors, typically in primary care, focus on a smaller, wealthier clientele who pay a membership fee to get on-demand access to their physicians.

Through Prime Surgeons’ website or app, patients who already have had surgery or want a second opinion on whether to have surgery can reach out directly to set up a consultation with one of the network’s surgeons, said company Chief Executive Gil Tepper.
