LSI sued by patients BusinessWeek article?

Hello hello! I'm new here and am trying to figure out if I should get this minimally invasive surgery or if I should just wait it out. On one hadn you have injections that will kill you and on the other hand you have these Laser Spine Institute guys who have been sued way to many times. Has anyone else seen this Business Week article? or is it just me?

    Regarding both LSI (which have long been knows as frauds, plenty of terrible feedback on them) and choosing a doctor/procedure: do your due diligence and research, find good reputable physicians and hospitals, that kind of thing. Hundreds of peeps right here on Spine Health along can vouch for the safety and efficacy of epidurals -- when they're done by trained doctors, administered with fluoroscopic guidance.

    Epidurals have gotten a bad rap since the whole tainted batch thing -- which is a huge tragedy and shows a flaw in the system. But don't forget, steroids are important in helping to diagnose the problem, too, and may save a person from more invasive procedures.
