Search Across Available Procedures - Coming Soon!

In the future, you will be able to leverage the "search" parameter at the /procedures/ endpoint to search for supported procedures. This parameter will conduct a 'fuzzy' search across the "display" fields for each procedure.

Please let us know if this is a priority for testing!
