HACKENSACK, N.J., Feb. 26, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Co-CEOs Dr. Jason Auerbach and Jeff Ward of MAX Surgical Specialty Management are proud to announce MAX's expansion into Pennsylvania.

This growth is another steppingstone in solidifying MAX's presence as the premier OMS platform supporting practices throughout the Northeast.

"With each partnership, we reinforce that MAX is not just another option but rather a real difference maker for so many great surgeons trying to navigate this space," shares Dr. Auerbach. "The feedback has been astounding, and we are confident it will be no different from our new partners at Lititz Oral Surgery. We are witnessing a transformation in our industry, and MAX is proud to be at the forefront of this evolution."

In Pennsylvania, MAX has forged a partnership with Lititz Oral Surgery, located in Lititz and Hershey, Pennsylvania. Led by esteemed surgeon Dr. John Vakkas, DDS, MD, Lititz Oral Surgery is recognized for its superior clinical standards, patient-focused approach, educational initiatives, and exceptional treatment outcomes. Dr. Vakkas will directly contribute to MAX's passion for philanthropy as he has done great work to support those with cleft lip and palate around the world. 

"Dr. Vakkas and his team exemplify the values that MAX stands for," Jeff Ward reflects. "Their dedication to superior patient care and specialized expertise make them invaluable partners that complement our other practices."

This new partnership in Pennsylvania showcases further progress toward MAX's mission in a tangible manner. MAX is thrilled to be reshaping the OMS industry landscape with surgeon-led vision and ideals.
