Surgical Consulting Network of America wants any personal information that you provide to us via this web site to remain as secure as possible.

As an additional security measure, your personal information is also encrypted during transmission by Secure Socket Layer 128-bit encryption software. (Encryption is a common method used to transmit sensitive data across the Internet. Encryption temporarily makes the text unreadable during the time it is being transmitted over the Internet.) Please note, that for encryption to work, your browser must be Netscape or Internet Explorer version 4.0 or higher, also encrypted. Not all versions of Netscape and Internet Explorer have 128-bit encryption capability; you will have to download the upgrade for that level of encryption.
