Adventures In Healthcare Reform – Orthopedic Surgeon For Heatlhcare Reform!

Dr. Craig Brigham of the OrthoCarolina Spine Center talks health reform. He says that spine surgery costs about five times more in the US than any other industrialized country. The fact is there is so much money to be made in the over treatment of back problems that there is little incentive to change the system. He adds that our current worker compensation system is not scientifically up to date.
