Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

DR. BUNDRICK is all over the web & YOUTUBE, and publishes the correct way to diagnose and treat abdominal nerve entrapments = ACNES = abdominal cutaneous nerve entrapment syndrome.  Yet Dr. Bundrick has been letting Dr. Michael Sarr - General Surgery Mayo Clinic Rochester - do unnecessary neurectomies on women patients especially - without consent or discussion - for money and to practice common mass closures that are not indicated to be done.  Or for the breast or practice exams on women patients put under anesthesia without consent - anesthesia doesn't have to get consent in these cases.  To do a common mass closure you have to cut all 3 abdominal muscle layers/fascia, and sew them all together like a little kid who can't sew.

You knew he was doing this, your staff talks about 'teamwork' yet Sarr would never call a decent General Medical attending to do any of his surgical clearances. [continued below]....
.....  Dr. Sarr doesn't have to do a Carnett's test, get a second opinion, or even try a 2% lidocaine injection - and if the pain & swelling went away with the injection, then the swelling was not another retained prolene suture.  The injection is diagnostic and therapeutic, and Dr. Sarr never offers, options, injections, or the truth to patients - he wants to cut in the most brutal & deforming way.  You don't get back to anyone that contacts you regarding this abuse.   

You've been watching this go on, and watching one woman MD take the 'fall' for objecting, and done nothing.  You need to review all of Dr. Sarr's cases for the last 15 years, and allow that any patient requesting be allowed undoing of the chronically painful and deforming common mass closure.  Why would you look the other way for this?  If you cut the transversus muscle it weakens bladder, child-bearing and the back muscles.   

Neurectomies cause the affected sensory area to lose sensation, to atrophy, to have frequent skin breakdowns, and all the one-finger nerve pain needed was an injection with 2% lidocaine.  The common mass closure causes all muscles cut to atrophy, lose muscular strength, and to be deformed and painful - it causes painful severe muscle spasms of 3 muscles contracting in different directions.

Dr. Sarr does not get consent or discuss these procedures, and Mayo Clinic Legal says this is OK.  How is this OK?  Even for women MDs, he doesn't not get consent, and just cuts.  Rule #1 of Surgical Training is not to cut into ANYTHING that you have not scanned or workup - it can be a tumor, it can be benign, it can be infected, it can be a parasite - you scan, workup, and then cut after getting patient consent.  Where did informed consent go at Mayo Clinic?
