3. Malpractice suits against orthopedic and spine surgeons are not covered here. Our goal is to be the most useful, practical and enjoyable business-focused publication for spine and orthopedic surgeons. While the coverage of lawsuits drives a lot of traffic, we have, with input from some very bright spine and orthopedic surgeons and colleagues, decided to substantially eliminate the coverage of malpractice suits against surgeons unless particularly instructive and even then in very limited circumstances. If you have any questions or comments, please email Scott Becker at or Laura Dyrda at
