IRVING, TEXAS (July 31, 2018)… U.S. Oral Surgery Management (USOSM) – a newly formed, specialty management services company serving the highest quality oral and maxillofacial surgeons – has secured partnerships with two leading multi-surgeon practices in Texas. The Thurston Group and RiverGlade Capital formed USOSM in late 2017 and completed strategic partnerships with Austin Oral Surgery, which has 13 board-certified, maxillofacial surgeons and 12 locations throughout Central Texas; and Oral Surgery Associates of North Texas (OSANT), which has five board-certified, oral surgeons and five locations in Dallas, Texas. USOSM offers premier oral surgeons a unique partnership model that fuels innovation, clinical excellence, and steadier more profitable growth.
“We have a sustainable partnership model that appeals to the highest quality oral surgeons. Our uniquely exclusive focus on oral surgeons has helped fuel our early growth,” said Richard Hall, USOSM President and CEO. “One of the things that makes USOSM unique is that we serve as an extension of the oral surgeons’ clinical mission while offering them business expertise and an alternative ownership solution for continued growth and practice success.”
“There are approximately 7,500 oral surgeons operating in the United States today and 94 percent of them operate in small, independent practices. These surgeons are forced to spend too much of their time on practice operations that seem to become more daunting every day, rather than spending this time focused on their patients. USOSM enables our surgeon-partners to maintain clinical autonomy and focus on patient care and clinical excellence, while we provide the rest – operations management, marketing, administrative support services, revenue cycle management, IT support, managed care contracting, volume purchasing, and physician and staff recruitment.” explained Hall.
That focus on quality patient care is one of the things that drew Austin Oral Surgery to partner with USOSM. Austin Oral Surgery was founded by doctors James Fricke and Sam Fason who built the practice on “a foundation of patients’ needs first.”
“Our legacy is exceptional care,” said Dr.Thomas Weil, managing partner of Austin Oral Surgery, “and that is the legacy upon which we have grown over the past 45 years. We are and have always been devoted to putting our patients’ needs first. By partnering with USOSM, our legacy of quality care remains stronger than ever.”
Like Austin Oral Surgery, Oral Surgery Associates of North Texas is a practice that has earned a reputation for excellence in patient care, and continuing that brand was a factor in its decision to partner with USOSM.
“Over the years, we have built a strong practice that is centered on patient care,” said OSANT’s Dr. Colin Bell. “Partnering with USOSM allows us to continue doing what we do best – caring for our patients – while USOSM helps position us for continued success by handling the business side of the practice.”
Headquartered in Irving, Texas, U.S. Oral Surgery Management (USOSM) – a specialty management services company – partners with premier oral and maxillofacial surgeons throughout the United States to offer a partnership solution for continued, and accelerated, practice success as the healthcare landscape becomes more competitive and the regulatory complexities increase. USOSM serves as an extension of the clinical mission of its surgeon partners by preserving clinical autonomy and focusing on patient care and exceptional patient outcomes. USOSM provides operational, marketing and administrative support services, reinvests resources, and applies best practices to improve clinical and financial performance to produce steadier, more profitable growth for all.
