Austin Surgeons was founded in 1997 when the individual practices of Drs. Lamar Jones, Charles Livingston, Robert Askew Sr. and Robert Askew Jr. merged. Dr. Brant Victor joined the group in 1999, followed by Dr. Mark Lindsey in 2005. Dr. Jeff Meynig and Dr. John Abikhaled merged their 12-year surgical practice with Austin Surgeons in 2006.
