A big problem is that the results of what could be a large number of clinical trials in the US are not released. In other words, we get the stories of the successes and not the failures with the resulting "tech or pharma cures all" theme being promoted. Check out the class-action lawsuits against some of our local firms for more on this.

I am thrilled to hear that new advances in medicine are happening everyday. We should know as consumers the statistics with success and failures with these devices. If I was at death's door and someone came and said let us try something new, but it is new to the market and there are still things that could go wrong, I would do it in a minute. I think it would be nice if 500 million we were giving to the Rochester infrastructure to support the Mayo Clinic expansion, was given to medical facilities in Minnesota that were actually on the front lines of new medical devices and research.
