Jamie Rindler, founder and president of Marvel Group, has spent the last decade specializing in the business of spine surgery, despite not being a doctor himself. His history with and perspective on the industry led to the Marvel Group's patient-centric spine surgery program and business practices, a unique and successful approach in the medical industry. Rindler's experience in the spinal surgery space led him to create a program that facilitates partnerships between hospitals and private practice spine surgeons, attracting new patients with a unique "patient promise" - a surgery guarantee that covers a patient's out-of-pocket expenses if they require an unplanned follow-up surgery within the first year. He believes this guarantee sets Marvel Group apart from other companies in the industry and brings much-needed business common sense into a convoluted industry. Join Rob Schulz and Jamie Rindler on this episode of the Priorities & Lifestyle podcast to learn more about this innovative approach.

"[As a spine surgeon], you can be a rockstar, or you could be less than [that]. No one knows. You get paid the same. And there's such a demand for these surgeons that you can go your whole entire career like that." - Jamie Rindler

Our Favorite Quotes:

  • "A neurosurgeon might get like 900 to $1200 to do that brain surgery on you or your mom or your cousin or your friend, and then later in the day, your muffler breaks on your car and you take it down the street to get repaired, and they want two grand to replace your muffler. And your muffler comes with a warranty, and your brain surgery does not. And it doesn't add up." - Jamie Rindler
  • "I can affect change with what I do. I can't control who the president of the United States is. I can't control whether healthcare reform on a global level is successful or not. I can't control any of that. But what I can do is I can make a good living at what I do here. I can change what I can change. I can know what I know. I can work with humans and people and help people." - Rob Schulz
  • "The surgeon decides what medical device technology they're going to use, what biologics they're going to use, what time of day they're going to operate, what the treatment protocol is afterwards. There's a myriad of decisions that the surgeon makes. So it makes sense that the surgeon is the one who the guarantee is tied to." - Jamie Rindler
