Italian clinic probed for alleged needless surgery

AP/Yahoo News, June 11, 2008

Police have arrested 13 doctors from a clinic in Milan, Italy, who are suspected of performing needless and sometimes fatal operations to make more money. The doctors from Santa Rita Clinic face charges ranging from fraud to homicide. Three of the doctors were arrested on suspicion of murder for allegedly having performed on several patients "abnormal or invasive surgeries, without taking into consideration the fragility of the patients because of age or their medical condition," according to a police statement.
