Crooked: Outwitting the Back Pain Industry and Getting on the Road to Recovery

 

My name I Brian Nelson. I am an orthopedic surgeon specializing in spine 

I supervised the treatment of approximately 150,000 spine pain patients over that past 25 + years and I have seen every treatment come and go. I have heard stories that would break your heart. I have followed the exploits of spine surgeons I believed should have been jailed to punish them for the trail of broken bodies left in their wake,

 

I saw money corrupt an industry designed to enrich providers and hospitals medical device companies at the expense of patients, I saw doctors collude with attorneys to extract as much money as possible from insurance companies. You may find Cathryn's book infuriating but after finishing it, she may have been too lenient. 

 

To be clear, I know many fine surgeons, chiropractors, pain doctors, etc. who are a credit to their profession. Nevertheless, there are far too many of the opposite character who shamelessly exploit a system that allows spine care to remain dysfunctional.

The Department of Justice, in conjunction with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and other federal departments, revealed on Thursday the largest crackdown on health care fraud in U.S. history. 

 

During a DOJ press conference, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the Health Care Fraud Takedown, which is now operating in its eighth year, charged 412 defendants, including 56 doctors, accused of defrauding taxpayers around $1.3 billion. 

 

"Too many trusted medical professionals like doctors, nurses, and pharmacists have chosen to violate their oaths and put greed ahead of their patients," Sessions said. "Amazingly, some have made their practices into multimillion dollar criminal enterprises. They seem oblivious to the disastrous consequences of their greed." 

 

Of the 412 defendants, 120 were charged with crimes related to improper issuance and overprescribing of opioids, billing government health services for fraudulent claims, swapping prescriptions for money and illegally recruiting subscribers to medication, among other things.
