The Surgicalist Group Airs on Prime Time on “Behind the Scenes” with Host James Earl Jones

TAMPA, Fla. (May 3, 2017)-The Surgicalist Group (TSG) will be featured on the Fox Business Network on May 4 and May 7 at 10:15 p.m. EST on “Behind the Scenes,” hosted by legendary actor James Earl Jones.

The segment covers a revived movement by a Florida surgeon called “The surgicalist model”. It addresses the threatened quality of acute surgical care in the U.S. due to a shortage of surgeons performing emergency procedures, rising costs of uncompensated care, liability concerns, declining reimbursement, retiring surgeons and lifestyle considerations.

Mit Desai, MD, FACS and Principal and CEO of The Surgicalist Group, introduces viewers to a growing number of doctors who have embraced the surgicalist model. The segment explains how the movement improves timeliness of care, physician satisfaction, emergency surgery scheduling, continuity of care, patient satisfaction and revenue increases. Joining Desai is veteran ER Dr. Laurence Martin, a Florida-based surgeon that embraced the model and is now able to focus entirely on his practice without having to reschedule his elective surgeries because of ER emergencies.

The segment will also air on other primetime networks, including CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, CNBC and the Family Channel between May 15 and May 31. “Behind the Scenes” is a mini documentary series that is distributed to public television stations across the U.S. The program highlights industry professionals and groundbreaking organizations.
