In pitches to doctors, promise of big payday
New York Times, January 18, 2008
Using e-mail solicitations that promise high pay, US HIFU is trying to build and train a network of American urologists for its offshore prostate cancer treatments. Solicitations state a doctor providing the company's treatments can receive up to five times what doctors earn in the United States for performing prostate cancer procedures. Some doctors worry that the money could sway doctors to recommend the treatment, even though it is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
