Description

This U.S.A. Today package examines "how rates of common surgeries varied across more than 306 hospitals regions in the United States." It reveals that "... where you live can determine the surgery you get." The reporter details specific cases, in which patients have not always informed of different surgical options. The investigation shows that "physicians often exhibit a blind loyalty to favored procedure that goes beyond scientific evidence..." The package includes a list of the top surgery regions in the country, as well as graphics illustrating the regional rates of different types of operations throughout the country.
