Healthcare - Intervene Medically

Healthcare - Intervene Surgically

  • Surgical Intervention: Surgical intervention decisions are usually evaluated on case-by-case basis and because of potential expense of such decision, the board is consulted prior to making a commitment.  If surgical intervention is recommended by our specialists, we collaborate with local experts to deliver the best and least expensive solution for a positive outcome for our participants.
