Beyond the Headlines

The headline on a story in today’s Sacramento Bee reads:

“2 UC Davis neurosurgeons accused of experimental surgery are banned from human research”

But, as is often the case, the story that follows is more complicated than the headline suggests.  It raises issues of bioethics related to the specific procedures described and also questions about management control in medical facilities.  I mention the latter because some readers will recall the body parts scandal at UCLA and the scrambled eggs/fertility clinic scandal at UC-Irvine.

We have a comment option on this blog which is rarely used but if medical professionals in particula have views on this story, it would be interesting to see them.
