U.S. Oral Surgery Management Opens with Immediate Growth

IRVING, Texas—U.S. Oral Surgery Management (USOSM), a newly formed, specialty management services company serving oral and maxillofacial surgeons, has secured partnerships with two leading multisurgeon practices in Texas.

The Thurston Group and RiverGlade Capital formed USOSM in late 2017 and completed strategic partnerships with Austin Oral Surgery, which has 13 board-certified maxillofacial surgeons and 12 locations throughout Central Texas and Oral Surgery Associates of North Texas (OSANT), which has five board-certified oral surgeons and five locations in Dallas, Texas. USOSM offers oral surgeons a partnership model that fuels innovation, clinical excellence and steadier, more profitable growth.
“We have a sustainable partnership model that appeals to the highest quality oral surgeons. Our uniquely exclusive focus on oral surgeons has helped fuel our early growth. One of the things that makes USOSM unique is that we serve as an extension of the oral surgeons’ clinical mission while offering them business expertise and an alternative ownership solution for continued growth and practice success," said Richard Hall, USOSM president and CEO. “There are approximately 7,500 oral surgeons operating in the United States today and 94 percent of them operate in small, independent practices. These surgeons are forced to spend too much of their time on practice operations that seem to become more daunting every day, rather than spending this time focused on their patients. USOSM enables our surgeon-partners to maintain clinical autonomy and focus on patient care and clinical excellence, while we provide the rest—operations management, marketing, administrative support services, revenue cycle management, IT support, managed care contracting, volume purchasing, and physician and staff recruitment.” 
That focus on quality patient care is one of the things that drew Austin Oral Surgery to partner with USOSM. Austin Oral Surgery was founded by doctors James Fricke and Sam Fason who built the practice on “a foundation of patients’ needs first.”
“Our legacy is exceptional care,” said Dr. Thomas Weil, managing partner of Austin Oral Surgery. "And that is the legacy upon which we have grown over the past 45 years. We are and have always been devoted to putting our patients’ needs first. By partnering with USOSM, our legacy of quality care remains stronger than ever.”
“Over the years, we have built a strong practice that is centered on patient care,” said OSANT’s Dr. Colin Bell. “Partnering with USOSM allows us to continue doing what we do best—caring for our patients—while USOSM helps position us for continued success by handling the business side of the practice.”
