Surgical Assistant, CRNFA

Hello and Welcome. My name is Virginia Austin, but I prefer to be called Ginger. I am scheduled to assist the surgeon on your upcoming procedure.
You should have received a letter from your medical office announcing my inclusion in the procedure. This website offers an explanation of my services including Robotic-assisted surgery (known as the da Vinci surgical system), a payment fee associated with my services, and assorted insurance forms that are helpful for an insurance refund/appeal. Your care is my utmost concern, and the purpose of this information is to hopefully make you more comfortable in your pre and post surgical experience.

A common question asked is, Why does my surgery require an assistant? Your surgeon determines when a surgical assistant is necessary for the procedure. In addition, industry standards and facility regulations often require a surgical assistant be present for your type of surgery. Insurance companies also allow for assistants to be present in some surgeries.

Please read more about me and I look forward to meeting you in the pre-operative holding room before your surgery.

Please read and fill out the consent form below.

See you soon,

Ginger Austin, CRNFA
