If you believe just this one lone study' put forth by a establishment medical journal, it is for you! I myself would never trust these journals, thy are simply a tool to convince doctors and patients that there is no alternative to the 17,000 dollar cut and slice procedure! The boldest scam of the industry! Unnessecary and dangerous to boot! I would imagine if any one made this kind of money on an outpatient procedure, advertisement and propaganda would be thier first attempt to secure such a profitable scam! If this report or story or fable sounds reasonable to you and complies with your pre existing biases then the issue is over for you!
But should you ever be need in of such an operation I believe that your common sense nature(if you have any left) to save money and avoid possible injury or complications, that this issue may arise upon the scene once more and you may just rethink your decision! Having an opinion is just hot air but having a personal stake in this issue clears your perspective and allows you to realy investigate and seek the truth, not just prop up some questionable paradigm that is finally being exposed for its backwards and profit oriented thinking!
