Introduction I am an academic surgeon with an interest in the scientific evidence for the true effectiveness of medical practice, as opposed to the perceived effectiveness. My aim is to increase the use of science in medical practice.
Interests Dr Skeptic is a pseudonym for Ian Harris, a surgeon with an interest in evidence based medicine: the science behind medicine, and in finding the true risks and benefits of interventions, and how this often differs from the perceived risks and benefits as seen by the public, the media, and the doctors themselves.
