“Mobile surgeons helping mobile surgeons”
SURGE began in the summer of 2011 when the founders Phil Zeltzman, Justin Harper, and Jim Ballow met in Boerne, TX, to share war stories and discuss ways to improve their mobile surgical practices without reinventing the wheel.
They each felt that they were on an island, as a few colleagues were discussing the issues they faced daily: electric or nitrogen? Tech or no tech? LLC or S-corp? They quickly realized that, despite the differences in their specific practices, they faced many of the same problems: no second opinions, no negotiation power, and no mobile surgery practice business standards. So they decided to share ideas, advice, and best practices.
As friends and colleagues joined the fun, SURGE was born… and grew to about 170 independent surgeons in the US, Canada, and beyond. SURGE is not a corporation, it’s a community. Our members are not employees of SURGE, they own their practice and remain in complete control of their decisions.

“There are so many unknowns and variables that go into starting any business, especially a mobile surgery business. Getting coaching early on from someone who has already made costly mistakes is invaluable. Learning how to be cost-effective, reduce overhead and still provide excellent surgical care is critical.”
Dr. Betsy Arthur
“Huge THANK YOU for making this meeting happen. It was really fantastic–I’m a tough critic, and I was so impressed with every part of it. The amount of thought and effort for every detail was clear, and setting an atmosphere of respect and cooperation from the start made it feel very positive throughout”

“I loved the coaching provided by a SURGE colleague. By sharing his experience, he helped me save time and efforts in a variety of ways. He validated several of the ideas I had come up with on my own based on my experience and preferences. One of the reasons I decided to invest in this coaching was to make sure I would be well-prepared to have all bases covered ahead of time. ”
