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.
