Laser Spine Institute Sued by Rival

A lawsuit filed against Tampa’s Laser Spine Institute alleges the center offered illegal incentives to entice patients to have surgery there, Bloomberg Businessweek reports. In a lawsuit filed in Hillsborough County Circuit Court, the owner of competitor Bonati Institute also accuses the spine-surgery competitor of interfering with business by using “secret shoppers.”
