"12 surgeries you may be better off without"
Make that thirteen.

Oh, and this one:
"No Evidence of Benefit Found for Arthroscopic Partial Meniscectomy"

Cutting out unnecessary surgeries would save probably tens of billions per year. Think how many more people could be insured and how many lives saved by allocating the money according to the evidence-informed procedures.

Science rules again. Get rid of these woo procedures.
