24 January 2017
AOA has issued a Letter to the Editor in response to inaccurate statements included in the Sydney Morning Herald's article 'Patients hurt by excess healthcare' (January 10 2017).

The SMH article in question, headlined 'Doctors overestimating benefits, underestimating harm of procedures, drugs' online, makes statements relating to knee replacements in Australia unsupported by the Lancet article it references.

Please review the letter for further information.
