A doctor comments on "needless knee replacements"
Dr. Brian Goldman has a show on Canada's CBC radio called "White Coat, Black Art." On this show he talks frankly about controversial things in medicine, as for instance medical error, over-treatment, and junk food in hospitals. In this particular episode he speaks about knee replacements, discussing who is likely to benefit and why, and why people who don't need knee replacements are getting them.
