Surgical Risk Mitigation
SURGly helps nudge patients toward better health before surgery, resulting in less complications, shorter hospital stays and fewer readmissions after surgery.
We're passionate about helping people achieve the best possible surgical outcomes
Hi my name is Dr. Ellen Flanagan.
I’ve practiced medicine for over 20 years and understand the uncertainty and risks associated with surgery. I’ve witnessed many opportunities to improve outcomes, decrease complications and readmissions so that you have the best chance to recover as quickly as possible after surgery.
If you or a loved one are thinking about or scheduled for surgery, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We can help!
How it works
Consult with our medical experts
We help you identify your risk factors for surgical complications. Let's collaborate to get you strong before surgery - no need to wait until you start rehab after surgery.
Support every step of your journey
After preparing a pre-operative plan, we give you small, manageable tasks through digital reminders that will help you achieve an excellent surgical outcome.
Get back to your best life
Our goal is to get you back to doing the things you love. We will carefully tailor a post-operative plan that minimizes chances of complications and remission.
Let's Get Started!
We identify modifiable risk factors for surgical complications. Understanding these risk factors permits us to give the patient manageable tasks in the days leading up to surgery.
Reducing surgical risk to improve surgical outcomes is our passion. Each patient, regardless of where they live, deserves to go into surgery as healthy as possible. Healthy patients have better outcomes.
We understand the critical actions needed from patients & their loved ones 6to get the best surgical outcomes.
We identify modifiable risk factors known to increase surgical complications and intervene using the principles of behavioral economics to mitigate surgical risk, decrease LOS and readmissions and keep your patients and their families happier and more satisfied with their care. SURGly uses a HIPPA Compliant bidirectional, multi-lingual, multi-channel platform (SMS text, email, snail mail, phone calls and nano-sites) to provide your patients with the right (brand-able) message at the right time. SURGly includes patient navigation platform to ensure that your patient arrives at the correct time on DOS, appropriately NPO and with correct documentation and responsible adult at the ready. This results in less DOS cancellations with less administrative burden and immediate and measurable ROI.
