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.

As someone with metalwork on their spine, this is a very uncomfortable listen! Fascinating though.

My problem with this podcast is the narrator is too nice, she never once asks "why tf didn't you report this monster when saw this, this or this??" The people surrounding him *absolutely* enabled and covered for him. It's scary that a doctor can get away with all of this over and over and over. It takes SO much to lose a medical license and that's not okay. Doctors can also take the same test/course over and over as needed, basically making it impossible for them to fail. The one doc in surgery with him should have put a stop to that surgery immediately. He walked out of the operation after "making his thoughts very clear". oh, good for you. how heroic. I'm almost as disgusted of his coworkers as Dr. Dutch, tbh.

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.
