Member Benefits

Whether you are a member of SVS or are thinking about joining, please know that the Society is continuously working to ensure that membership is valuable -- providing education, clout, camaraderie and information, but also the tools that help surgeons and related professionals succeed in their careers and practices. Below are just some of the benefits enjoyed by SVS members.

Peace of mind

Insurance, financial planning and more

You have worked hard developing your skills, your practice and your financial health. Protect them with solutions designed just for professionals like you.

The SVS has launched a program of benefits exclusively for members that address issues we all face. Whether you are seeking payroll management, estate planning, disability insurance for high earners, or a variety of other products, start with SVS to find the best deals from quality companies that have been screened with your professional issues in mind.

All members can benefit from those offerings geared to physicians; approximately half of the menu of benefits will be of special interest to the community / private practitioner. In fact, members of the Community Practice Committee helped suggest some of the options.
