if these practices joined as a multisurgical group, or multispecialty group, they might be able to lower their overhead costs (a group can get a better rate on malpractice then an individual, less office space, less staff),
While multispecialty groups may offer better bargaining power from a purchasing standpoint, they typicall have overheads much,much higher than single specialty surgical groups. A good surgery practice can have overhead around 20%. MSG's are often twice that and use proceduralists to shore up the rest of the group.
