Good intentions

I might have confused recurrence with chronic pain rate in one of my comments above. Here is a recent reference to a paper confirming the high chronic pain rate for TEP.

The focus on recurrence begs the question of “why did the patient see the physician in the first place?” To have their pain removed. That’s why Dr. Felix’s presentations are so frustrating to see. He completely ignores the Hippocratic oath. He will become known as the Father of Chronic Pain, I think, not the Father of Lap Mesh Placement.

Doctors seem so caught up in the bright lights of technology that they’ve forgotten why they became doctors.
