National Surgical Ventures LLC (NSV) was founded in 2018 to meet the growing need for, and interest in providing surgical and endovascular care to patients outside of the hospital.
Over the last few years, CMS and other payors have been steadily approving more procedures for reimbursement when performed in either the ASC or the OBL. Currently, more than 600 OBLs and over 5000 Medicare approved ASCs are operational in the U.S.
Depending upon the type of procedure NSV can help physicians meet the needs of patients by providing care at one geographical location in a hybrid OBL/ASC model. Under the leadership of renowned vascular surgeon Krishna Jain, MD, NSV can provide a turnkey solution to interventional cardiologists, vascular surgeons, and/or interventional radiologists interested in providing safe, efficient and effective care outside of the hospital, in the OBL or ASC setting.
We are committed to a multidisciplinary model of providing care. In a multidisciplinary model for limb preservation :Vascular surgeons, plastic/reconstructive surgeons and surgical podiatrists could perform open procedures in the ASC setting, while the endovascular specialists Vascular surgeons, Interventional cardiologists and interventional radiologists) could perform procedures in either the ASC or the OBL depending on regulatory requirements.
The center may function as an ASC on certain days/week, and as OBL on others. This allows the physicians maximum flexibility to have access to both an ASC and OBL in one place, with control over such processes as scheduling, follow-up, and quality/infection control. The center can offer endovascular care for limb preservation, management of dialysis access, venous procedures, embolization procedures like uterine fibroid embolization, port placement and pacemaker related procedures etc.
