Supporting Surgical Success.

Also known as MISS, SpecialtyCare’s minimally invasive surgical support team reduces expenditures, decreases OR downtime, and increases positive outcomes.


Minimally Invasive Surgical Support Services

SpecialtyCare’s Minimally Invasive Surgical Support Team provides the support your hospital needs for the technical demands of surgery. We work with surgeons all across America to provide surgical support that increases positive outcomes with patients and reduces the overall cost for hospitals. Our highly trained clinicians use the latest video tower technology and surgical instruments to make sure surgeons are satisfied and to keep the operating room running as smoothly as humanly possible.

What SpecialtyCare MISS Provides

First, SpecialtyCare provides the most modern equipment available in healthcare that is tailored to a surgeons’ needs. With your equipment covered, your operating team can focus on the patient rather than technical issues, which is the most important of all.

Secondly, when it comes to minimally invasive surgical support, listening is the key. Our clinicians listen and act swiftly based on surgeon requests in a thorough and timely manner, which allows us to anticipate the needs of the surgical team and guarantee complete instrumentation sets and proper room preparation to keep the surgical departments on schedule.

Your team can also benefit from:

Reduced Expenditures. We purchase, repair, and maintain instruments and equipment so you don’t have to make major money decisions every three to five years, which allows you to spend your extra dollars elsewhere.

Decreased OR Downtime. We manage the levels of trays and backup instruments to eliminate downtime. We also assist with setup, provide verbal assistance, and clean and maintain instruments after each procedure.

Here are a few other ways SpecialtyCare can help:

  • Clinical quality data reports with benchmarking capabilities
  • Expert handling of instruments and equipment
  • Assistance, troubleshooting, and pre-op to post-op support
  • Better cost savings through planning, reduced downtime, and workflow management
