We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system.Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away.But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect?From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.Listen to Dr. Death Seasons 1 and 2 exclusively on Wondery+.

"This podcast truly shocked me! The fact that something like this was able to occur shows how corrupt the medical system is in America. But the podcast itself is fantastic journalism and the narrator is great at keeping the story interesting. Listener discretion advised though because it can get very graphic."
"Don’t miss any Dr Death seasons. As someone who’s had 2 spine surgeries in Dallas and due another, this one is terrifying."
"This was my very 1st podcast I ever listened to. And this is what is made me obsessed with true crime podcasts. So easy to listen to, and such and interesting story. "
