David Spodick in an editorial in the American Heart Journal in 1971:
Physicians cure little or nothing. We alter physiology, arrest inflammation, and remove tissue, but with the exception of some infections and some deficiency states there are few if any cures in terms of restitutio ad integrum.
(Quoted in Petr Skrabanek’s The Death of Humane Medicine)
