EP. 83: Orthopedic Medicine is a Scam | Part 1
On this weeks episode, I am going solo to talk about why I think orthopedic medicine is a scam. I spent the entirety of my medical career in musculoskeletal medicine and I've seen behind the curtain on more than one occasion. I've also heard the MANY horror stories from patients. My job was to keep folks out from under the orthopedists knife and I'd like to finally share my thoughts on this busted system. I'm tired of watching human beings be handled in this medieval way and I want to set the story straight.
