Monologue

Dr. Wallach starts the show today discussing unnecessary procedure performed in the medical industry. Citing studies from Harvard medical school that concluded surgery for arthritis is unnecessary. Another study from Harvard concluded that surgery for low back pain is also unwarranted. Doc contends that both arthritis and degenerative disk disease can be corrected through lifestyle and dietary changes.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss two news articles regarding studies on CT (computed tomography) scans. The first study analyzed data from the CDC and found the use of CT scans in the emergency room increased 330% from 1996 to 2007. During this same time period the percentage of emergency room admissions rose only 30%. Another study found that doctors admitting patients to the ED (emergency department) only used the information one out of three patients to make a correct diagnosis.
