Description

If a doctor is fired from a hospital, the hospital should report it immediately. That’s how problem doctors are prevented from getting hired elsewhere. But the places where Dr. Duntsch operated failed to report him to the proper authorities. If they had, maybe Duntsch’s path of destruction would have been stopped much sooner.

This guy is a fucking bastard, seriously, how did this go on for so long! I feel so bad for the man with the pinched nerve who endured having so much catastrophic damage done to him.

As a surgical technologist I am freaked out about this story. I thoroughly enjoy spine and as I listened to the patients injured by him it brought tears to my eyes. How awful, what a piece of crap.

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.

great podcast but I hate that she calls the nurse practitioner in his office his "assistant". NPs are not assistants!

Great podcast! Interesting enough to be Binge worthy! How did I not hear about this when it happened? And I live nearby.

now I understand why no one wants to go under the knife. why their is a stereotype of surgery has such a bad stereotype. not sure I can trust doctors after this podcast. I know this is just one bad apple ruining it for everyone but after hearing they don't always report malpractice is kind of hard to hear that and trust any doctor after.
