Spine surgeons at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center have incorrectly performed three spine operations on patients in the last three months, with two of the botched operations being performed by the same surgeon. Dr. Kenneth Sands of BIDMC comments.
Our healthcare system is very good at high tech, cutting edge procedures and treatments. The trouble is access. If you dont have insurance or if your insurance wont pay for the treatment then it does little good. Our system does not provide good primary, prenatal care and pediatric care for the general population. The issue again is access.
