Description

We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system.


Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away.


But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect?


From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.

this is probably the biggest amount of ads for a 30+ min podcast. holy crap. I get ads are necessary but it's a bit much. I'm almost annoyed enough to quit listening.

I've had transforaminal lumber inter body fusion of L5-S1. 100 % successful. No longer have any pain whatsoever. I had no concerns about having the procedure done at all. Mainly because I researched the crap out of the procedure and who were the leading surgeons in the procedure. Plus I live in Australia.
