I've been befuddled for a good long time how Jack Kruse can make the claims he makes yet remains a practicing neurosurgeon in good standing. Well ... perhaps this sheds some light on goings on:
At its Nov. 18, 2011, meeting, the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Board of Directors approved the recommendations of the Professional Conduct Committee that three members be disciplined for unprofessional conduct while appearing as expert witnesses in medical malpractice lawsuits. The disciplinary actions are:
. The Board concluded that Dr. Kruse gave false testimony in a deposition regarding the size of pedicle screws used in surgery by another neurosurgeon. There were several other matters which, while not the basis for the suspension recommendation, were causes for concern.
Well, this would explain a lot. "Jack" is John unless anyone even doubts. This is not a suspension of license to practice, just society membership, but still. Not sure what "other matters" are. Interesting the other two refer at least to years when the alleged infraction occurred but not Jack's. Just passing publicly available info along to my readers...
