Billy Boone became an accidental pioneer in establishing the legal right of patients to know their surgeon’s level of experience – without having to ask first. It’s all about the information that a surgeon must provide to the patient so that the patient’s consent becomes truly intelligent and “informed.”
Mike Wood lost the use of his hand because his surgeon scared him into rushing into an operation he really didn’t need. The surgeon also lacked experience in the operation, and there was a better, safer way available, even if it was justified. All this shows the importance of careful questioning of the surgeon before going into any non-emergency surgery. It also shows the importance of realizing that doctors can have a conflict between their desire to do more surgery and make money, and the goal of doing what’s best for the patient.
