  • Overview

    In this segment, Dr. Lantos explores the explosive public and advocacy group responses to the Ashley Treatment, a controversial grouping of invasive medical procedures aimed at attenuating the growth of a child with severe developmental disabilities, first performed in 2004. The talk concludes with a unique comparison of the Ashley Treatment with interventions commonly given to elderly patients suffering from Alzheimer's Disease, establishing the unfortunate trend in addressing social responsibilities in various age groups with procedural medicine's "quick fixes."
