Health care industry showers money on UW doctors

Ten doctors at UW-Madison received $48,000 or more from drug or medical device companies last year, a State Journal analysis of campus disclosure records found.

Six of the doctors were orthopedic surgeons, and each made $99,000 or more in consulting or royalty fees on top of their salaries averaging $750,000.

The top earner — Dr. Thomas Zdeblick, with nearly $1.7 million in medical industry income — has been the subject of investigations and media reports about conflicts of interest in medicine.
