Executive Summary

AdvaMed CEO Scott Whitaker isn't happy about new Netflix documentary "The Bleeding Edge," which is highly critical of the medical device industry and US FDA. See what Whitaker – who was featured in the film – said about it here.

"I've been in this town a long time [and] I don't believe serious policymakers are going to look at a film like this and make policy and regulatory judgments based on what they said. Because people in this town are smart enough to know that it was an entertainment piece, that it was not fact-based, that it distorted quotes that not only I made but others made, and as a result of that it's not a basis for changing the regulatory process, that by and large has worked very, very well." –Scott Whitaker, CEO, AdvaMed
