Should surgery be filmed?

I think all major surgical procedures should be recorded on video with sound. That would keep patients safer and at the same time it would provide a means where Doctors could protect themselves as well. With the sky high cost of doing business as a surgeon right now the fact that operations are NOT recorded is IMHO Absurd.

If I asked one of the top arizona malpractice attorneys what they thought I’m sure I would get an interesting answer. For one thing, the cost to insure surgeons has gotten so high it changed the medical practice in this country – not in a good way. We need patients to get good care and we need Doctors to be able to operate without the cost to be prohibitive.
