Mission
The New Jersey Chapter of the American College of Surgeons consists of surgeons dedicated to advancing the highest standards of excellence in patient care, through the education of health professionals and the public, and by supporting research and surgical training programs in the state. It advocates at the state and national levels on behalf of surgeons and their patients.
The Chapter sees itself as an authoritative source of information, for surgeons and others, on surgical treatment of disease. It promotes excellence in patient care by providing a forum for professional education and exchange of ideas, and serves as a reliable source of guidance for the public. It facilitates basic and clinical research and supports excellence in training for the future surgeons of New Jersey. It also sees itself as providing a cohesive voice for many surgical specialties in societal and governmental issues related to the practice of surgery in New Jersey and in the nation, by actively engaging in dialogue with state and national political leaders, in the context of initiatives from the American College of Surgeons national office.




URGENT!!! Download The Letter Below To Send To Your Legislators ASAP!!!


Dear Leader McConnell, Leader Schumer, Speaker Pelosi, and Leader McCarthy:

As Congress continues its efforts to protect patients from surprise medical bills, we hope that you recognize the potentially devastating unintended consequences that certain proposals under consideration could have on smaller and independent physician practices such as ours, and urge you to ensure a thoughtful approach as the various proposals are brought together.

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) sent a letter to Congress regarding the surprise medical billing
issue. The letter urges Congressional leadership to not include surprise billing legislation in a year-end

spending package unless two key issues are addressed appropriately:

1. Payment by the health plan to out-of-network physicians cannot be tied to mean or median in network,or Medicare rates.

2. There must be an accessible independent dispute resolution (IDR) system included that allows doctors and health plans to have a fair third party arbiter settle payment disputes. That IDR language must include specific parameters and criteria.

Most importantly, poorly drafted surprise billing legislation should not be used as an offset for other government programs in an end of year funding package. As Congress continues it's work to address this issue, we would urge all Fellows to utilize SurgeonsVoice online to urge members of Congress to consider these ACS-supported principles.

The complexity and magnitude of medical advances in the management of liver disease make it ever more difficult for clinicians to apply this tremendous amount of information to their practice. This activity will provide learners with a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art advances in the diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive modalities of liver disease based on the latest evidence, literature, and clinical research. A thorough review of the current treatment landscape is vital to both clinicians and patients who can benefit from this expansion of therapeutic options.
