Medtronic Paid Doctor $19 Million

According to the Wall Street Journal, "A prominent spine surgeon and researcher at the University of Wisconsin received $19 million in payment over five years from Medtronic Inc., one of the country's largest makers of spinal devices." This "report of multimillion-dollar payments to Dr. Thomas Zdeblick comes amid a growing movement for more detailed disclosure of the financial ties between doctors and outside interests."
