Roland Chalifoux DO, is a practicing surgeon in Wheeling West Virginia.
As a victim of sham peer review, Dr. Chalifoux took on the Texas Medical Board and hospitals after being targeted for economic retaliation. His article about HCQIA and Semmelweis Society International (2002) explains his continuing concerns with HCQIA and why he was elected as SSI President in 2007.


Will You be the Next Subject of Peer Review? at Semmelweis Society International

Take the case of Roland F. Chalifoux, DO. ln 1995, he was an "arrogant young neurosurgeon" working at a 100-bed hospital in Dallas, Texas.
He ran afoul of 3 orthopedists, partners in a well-connected group, over who did spine surgeries. They wanted to do bone fusions while Chalifoux did decompressions. Chalifoux, trained to perform both, stubbornly refused. Chalifoux then found himself peer-reviewed "on trumped-up charges," he says. Continuing medical education or proctoring - corrective measures that are supposed to be initially prescribed when a doctor is deemed at fault - never came up. Instead, his hospital privileges were summarily suspended, he was reported to the National Practitioner Data Bank, and he ended up losing his Texas medical license. He now runs a pain clinic in Wheeling, West Virginia. He's lucky he got that. (Dr. Chalifoux is the current President of Semmelweis Society International.)


This&That

In response, SSI President (and neurosurgeon) Roland Chalifoux issued this press release to explain the rationale of the awards.
But when two dissenters persisted, Dr. Chalifoux asked me to conduct an independent investigation of Ms. Farber and Prof. Duesberg, citing my investigative experience, independence, and almost complete lack of knowledge about HIV and AIDS.I accepted the case.Although I didn’t expect it at first, I was warned that I should expect attacks from the “other side.†I wasn’t sure what they meant but kept it in the back of my mind. Obviously, Gil and Roland did not cook this up themselves.It is sad that Farber did not respond to a single one of your well-documented points.
