As long as there is no compensation from the lawyer to the non-lawyer, it is not only ethical, it is extremely common. Most professionals depend heavily on word of mouth in obtaining clients/patients.
I agree with Mr. McCormick. It would only be unethical if the surgeon was receiving compensation from the attorney for referring clients.
