LAKELAND — Florida Surgery Consultants has opened its first Polk County location and seventh clinic in the state.

The new Surgery Consultants facility is located at 604 Robin Road, Suite 1, in Lakeland, according to a company statement.

The Lakeland center created four new jobs, bringing the statewide total to 40 employees.

That workforce includes six surgeons — four neurosurgeons, an orthopedic surgeon and a plastic surgeon. The neurosurgeons specialize in minimally invasive surgeries as well as the most complex spine procedures, the statement said, and the plastic surgeon is one of the few physicians in the state that performs microsurgery.

The staff physicians are salaried and do not own the company, which means the surgeons have no financial incentives to push any procedures, it added.

Surgery Consultants accepts most health insurance plans, including workers’ compensation.

The 7-year-old company also has medical clinics in Tampa, Bradenton, Ocala, The Villages, Palm Harbor and Wesley Chapel.
