Using Australian Surgical Assisting (ASA) to arrange an assistant is convenient, and saves time, with NO COST to the specialist.

With surgical experience ranging from a few to twenty years, ASA assistants can provide the short or long term assistance your practice needs.

  • ASA manages all billing and collection activities for assistants, freeing up your time and reducing your practice costs.
