SSM Health canceling procedures as 11 orthopedic surgeons begin early departure

Orthopedic

Surgeries and appointments at SSM Health in Madison, Wis., are being canceled weeks before 11 orthopedic surgeons, who resigned earlier this month, plan to leave the practice, according to a Nov. 23 report from the Chippewa Herald.

On Nov. 6, the surgeon group asked SSM Health's CEO for a patient continuity agreement, but the results of the request have not been released, according to the report. 

It appears no agreement was reached, as many of the surgeons have already started to leave, when originally, they planned to stay through the end of the year. 

One patient reportedly had his knee replacement surgery canceled just two days before the procedure was scheduled.
