Westword examines "a string of ugly power plays and costly purges at the [University of Colorado's] Health Science Center over the past decade, a ruthless political contest in which the big losers have been patients and the university's own battered reputation." The story looks at the firing of Dr. Richard Schmidt, an urologist known for his pioneering work using electrical stimulation of nerves. The article describes how the doctor "worked wonders with chronic-pain patients" and how they were left without adequate medical help after his termination.
