Obama Says Surgeons Make $40,000 To Amputate A Limb

In his healthcare townhall meeting in New Hampshire, President Obama states that surgeons get paid $30,000-$50,000 to amputate a limb in diabetic patients. First of all he is way off base regarding the money paid to surgeons because in the hospital where I work I frequently cant find a surgeon to do the amputation. THey obviously don't get paid much especially in a potentially high risk surgery. Why doesn't he talk about medical legal liability reform/tort reform to help reduce costs? Is he being lobbying by the trial attorneys- Oh no way! Maybe if the surgeon didn't have to pay so much in malpractice the cost of this patients care could be less. Lastly how can he discuss healthcare reform adequately when he gets facts severely wrong.

  1. Here is a true malpractice case. My dad is a family doctor who also sees
    nursing home patients. He had an 80 year old patient who had a severe
    stroke and could not eat/walk/talk after the event. FAmily requested a
    feeding tube. Patient gets diarhea and pressure ulcer/decubiti. Then
    aspirates/chokes on tube feeds and dies. Family sue nursing home for
    20million, my dad for 1million for elderly neglect. Case settles for
    patient! Who pays for this? SOCIETY/YOU in your premiums

  2. he is way off base – out of touch with reality of how much doctors are
    being paid!

  3. I, as a surgeon, get from medicare about $600 from medicare about 3 months
    later after an amputation, which includes post op visits for 90 days. After
    overhead( 50%), $300, after taxes, about $160. I just paid my dentist $950
    for one tooth crown. My malpractice insurance( ZERO successful claims
    against me in 20 yrs practice) $60,000/yr. Hmm. Looks like I give an arm
    and a leg every year to the government. On top of 40% assets disappearance
    last year due to government policies.

  4. Shows how much Obama knows about medicine. Pay more for wound care and
    amputations, medicare! Try Tort reform, lawyer boy!

  5. As a surgeon I challenge anyone to go to Medicare’s reimbursement schedule
    for amputations. It’s there on the internet. Depending on the amputation
    you will find the reimbursement to be around 700-1200 dollars. And that
    includes the 90 day global period which is free care. Obama is either
    clueless or not truthful. I’m not sure which one is worse.

  6. @surgbuck – It’s deliberate lying. That’s his M.O.

    @1doctordoctor1 I’m sure yoru rich doctor dad could afford it. If you’re
    going to do malpractice, be ready to pay for it. Doctors are paid way to
    much, I drive by the hospital and see all the nice cars. I personally would
    love to see Medicare for all, and squeeze the doctors for a lot of cost
    savings. This is one of the reasons I voted for Obama, doctors removing
    tonsils just for the money is disgusting. I hope healthcare reform puts you
    guys in your place. Obama 2012!!!

  8. @ObamaBiden20082012 -you are a perfect example of an uinformed 0bama voter:
    a “usefull idiot” and a Tool who does the bidding of his political puppet
    masters. Crouch down, and lick the hand that feeds you. At some point they
    will have a boot on your neck, and you will have helped them take away your
    own freedoms by cheering them on when they did the same to others.

    racist. lets be honest, you don’t like Obama because he’s black. You have
    no substance, just hate.

  10. The boat is leaning WAY too far to the left, and is in danger of sinking,
    FAST. You elected the wrong black guy. Condy Rice/ Colin Powell would have
    been better choices. I would have voted for them. Obama is 1/2 white, by
    the way. He would still suck if he was snow white. Be careful what you wish
    for. Rape your doctor a bit more, soon you’ll have no doctors. Right the
    ship. Stay tuned for the November backlash.

  11. he is right!

    Nurse: “DR.! DR! Where are you going!!!?” Surgeon: “That’s its guys, wrap
    it up.” Nurse: “What Happened?” Outside: Surgeon to Nurse: “Call his
    family, There is Too much bleeding.”

  13. @james040280 ok buddy , so your saying the president is a liar now?? or is
    it cuz u wanna get a higher wage james u are a dummy just like sugebuck

  14. @james040280 ok gold digger , obama unlike you cares for peoples well being
    and usa in a whole , so he is trying to help folks prevent deseases for
    their own good and for the good of the economy , your dumbass surgeon

  15. @james040280 whatever dude , u just dont understand anything obama is
    trying to take preventable steps to reduce people from wasting a whole
    bunch of cash and guess one dumb surgeon , u will never win this one , The
    truth shall set everyone free and u are a phoney thats all no respect for u
    , never will i be your patient now goodbye

  16. Sooooo Funny! I haven’t read your comments yet, but I can tell you from
    experience that in New Jersey, we are LOSING primary care physicians, more
    so every day. The insurance companies are not negotiating, giving bottom
    dollar re-imbursements in this 3rd party payer system we have. The Doctors
    are going to the hospitals, where they can secure a salary, and not worry
    about haggling for their pay. We are LOSING what he portends to assist, and
    it’s because the insurance companies are emboldened.

  17. Obaba fails to see that most people with this disease has to follow a
    balanced diabetic diet, and they have to take care of themselves. America
    fails to see that they are doing this to themselves, Surgeons are just
    doing their jobs!

  18. Not just inaccurate but downright paranoiac. The idea that doctors are only
    in it for the money is gut-wrenchingly insulting and, well, insane. “I’m
    not dissing surgeons here” sounds as truthful as “If you like your health
    plan, you can keep it” and “because of a video” and “I just found out about
    it on the news.” A profoundly immoral man.
