Show Notes

We begin by discussing how Dr. Khurana joined Dr. Laurich at his practice in South Dakota. When Dr. Laurich opened his solo practice, he realized there was a lack of medical care in the community and he knew he would not be able to meet the demand on his own. He decided he wanted to bring an IR to his group due to his respect for IR and the breadth of procedural and clinical knowledge they would bring. He knew that their combined skills would provide better patient care than hiring another vascular surgeon.

Next, we discuss the concept of collaboration over competition in vascular surgery and interventional radiology. Dr. Khurana advises that in order to enter into a partnership such as this, you have to understand that you are not the only one able to do endovascular work, that there are vascular surgery and interventional cardiology colleagues who are extremely talented in vascular intervention. All egos must be put aside, and you must never forget that the goal is to help the patient. Dr. Khurana joined Dr. Laurich with this mindset and an eagerness to learn as much as he could to benefit their community.

Dr. Laurich and Dr. Khurana hope this collaborative model grows in popularity among all endovascular specialists. The OBL model affords physician autonomy, excellence in patient care, and provides an out from the burnout caused by the hospital grind. What ends up happening at a well designed and operated OBL is that everyone wins: physicians, patients and staff. This VS-IR powerhouse hopes to provide master courses in the future for physicians to learn how to master certain diseases or procedures that they need to run a successful multidisciplinary endovascular OBL.
