New Jersey Society of Plastic Surgeons and Medical Justice Announce Partnership

GREENSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA, August 18, 2010 – – The New Jersey Society of Plastic Surgeons (NJSPS) recently announced partnership with Medical Justice®, the organization that protects healthcare professionals against frivolous medical malpractice lawsuits, unwarranted demands for refunds, and online defamation.

Medical Justice focuses exclusively on the healthcare industry.  Their members enjoy significant reductions in frivolous medical malpractice cases and other related medico-legal threats.  The partnership is intended to aid the Society by preemptively mitigating medico-legal risks for members while further enriching and enhancing the Society’s mission.

Effective immediately, Medical Justice will offer NJSPS members preferred price discounts on its full membership, (encompassing all products and services,) based on NJSPS Member participation.  The NJSPS will add Medical Justice as a new member benefit for its members.

The founder/CEO of Medical Justice (and a board-certified neurosurgeon), Dr. Jeffrey Segal comments, “We are delighted to establish this partnership with the NJSPS. There are significant synergies between the two organizations and Medical Justice is honored to deliver our unique and cost-effective medico-legal solutions to New Jersey-based plastic surgeons.”

Medical Justice offers a way to help make that happen.”
