Neurosurgeon Needed in Huntsville to Join Established Group!

This is an exceptional opportunity to become part of a 50-year-old, growing Spine and Neurosurgery private practice established in 1964, joining three neurosurgeons. The Spine and Neurosurgery Center is the only group of Neurosurgeons in the area. All physicians are currently on a four-day work week. There are two clinical days and two OR days designated, with Friday serving as an optional day for the physician to take off. The practice employs physician assistants to serve as physician extenders for the partners. The case mix for the practice is 75% spine and 25% cranial with a full compliment of both spine and cranial cases provided by the surgeons. The surgeons are the principal owners of the 124,500 sq. ft. state-of-the-art medical facility, which includes the pedestrian bridge to Huntsville Hospital, a five and a half story attached parking deck and an outpatient surgery center. Each surgeon, when working a clinic day, will have their own pod which includes six exam rooms. The clinic space accommodates three physiatrists and the physical therapy clinic is approximately 4,000 sq. ft. The outpatient surgery center is housed on the second floor of the building, directly above the neurosurgeon's clinic. All partners are currently owners of a successful outpatient MRI center that is local and is 98% physician owned. The incoming candidate will have an opportunity to by in to the center after becoming a partner. The group is currently involved in multiple research studies with most of the leading device manufacturers and many pharmaceutical companies. The practice employs a research coordinator and is a top tier study site for Synthes, Kyphon, and Globus Medical. The group is currently averaging two to three concurrent studies and also participates in IED studies for device approval. The call schedule for this group will be one in four and partners have the opportunity to tailor their off days to follow their call. The trauma call for this group averages seven to ten calls per shift. There are currently four trauma surgeons and a hospitalist group. The incoming candidate will have no problem coming in and establishing a practice. Currently the wait time for new patients is between two and three weeks; however, patients with brain tumors, compression fractures, or acute disc herniations are provided an appointment on the next clinic day following the referral. More than 600 physicians make up the referral base for this established practice.
