Advocacy Call to Action: Maintain Access to Medically Necessary Surgeries

Tue, December 01, 2020 4:21 PM | Babette Atkins (Administrator)

The NYS Society of Orthopaedic Surgeons (NYSSOS) strongly advises against the shutdown of medically necessary surgeries prior to the opportunity to review the criteria and provide surgical input and guidance. 

Surgeons and providers should be the ultimate decision makers regarding the appropriate site of service for their patients keeping in mind quality, safety, and risks. With state guidance and coordination, hospitals and ambulatory surgical facilities should be given the data and guidance to allow the appropriate level of elective cases best indicated by their medical staff, administration and current needs of the community.
