My Conversation with an Orthopedic Surgeon

I had to ask the #orthopedicsurgeon twice last night at dinner.

“Ron, I make $2,000 per surgery. That’s it.”

I asked where does the other $106,000 go? He truly did not know but agreed in his career spinal surgeons once made healthy seven figures. He’s at half that now. What happened?

How do I get a better-paying client? He asked.

Via direct contracting with the likes of #SanoSurgery who connects him to employers who are self-insured. I used to think everyone in healthcare was getting hammered except docs like him. I live in a future where everybody wins. #Doctor #Employer #Customer / #Employee.
