Silence helps healthcare fraud continue.

This is the best video I have seen that explains what is going on behind the scenes in ortho surgery, however it is happening in every specialty. For example it is estimated over 80% of hysterectomies are medically unnecessary.

When a patient has medically unnecessary treatment it can lead to disability, opioid abuse, divorce, loss of job and even poverty.

Educating patients about this issue would be extremely helpful in my opinion.
