Found this interesting article front page of the Wall Street Journal the other day. Initially caught my eye because I know the surgeon as he is from my home state of South Dakota. Being in private practice, I have no problem with for profit companies and competition, I believe it is a healthy way to deliver a quality product. However, I am not in favor of offering and selling products if they are not necessary, escpecialy when those products are spinal surgeries. You be the judge, I am interested to hear everyone’s comments.
