Physicians as Assistants at Surgery:2011 Study

6th Edition

The American College of Surgeons along with other surgical specialty organizations reviewed for the 6th time, all procedures in the "Surgery" section of the American Medical Association's Current Procedural Terminology (CPT TM) 2011. They determined whether the use of a physician as an assistant was necessary, (1) almost always, (2) some of the time, or (3) almost never. This information is then shown in a table. An excerpt on "Surgical Assistants" is also included which describes the College's view on the qualifications of a first assistant.

This information is to provide a guideline as to which procedures are Billable for PAs as First Assistants in the OR.
