ACS Recommendations on Elective and Emergent Surgery During the Pandemic 

Presented By: Justin Koenig, DO, FACOS
General Surgery, Trauma Surgery, BMG Trauma & Surgical Services

Learning Objectives: 

  • Provide an understanding of where we are in terms of surgical care today
  • ACS Committee on Trauma Response
  • Define the term “Aerosol Generating Procedure”
  • Explain how surgical care may evolve in the next weeks or months
  • Discuss the latest recommendations of the ACS and their response on COVID-19


Justin Koenig, DO, FACOS, has dedicated his life to serving his country and his patients. The U.S. Air Force Major helped lead surgical teams at home and abroad in his years of military service. He was even deployed to North Africa to help establish trauma care services in developing regions.
While stationed at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado, the Auburn, Ind., native and his family decided to return to the Midwest so he could practice medicine in a more traditional hospital setting. Dr. Koenig wanted to be a part of the Beacon team because of our commitment to improving the lives of our patients.
“As a trauma surgeon, I usually meet people on their worst day imaginable and I make my best effort to heal them,” Dr. Koenig said. “I want to be your ally. It’s my goal to make patients as informed about their care as possible. And I work with each patient to improve his or her overall well-being and ensure they are an integral part of their own healing process.”
