Bruce Flamm, MD

Bruce Flamm is a clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of California, Irvine. In addition to delivering several thousand babies he has published dozens of research papers and two books on cesarean section, America's most common major operation.

He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry from the University of California and his Doctor of Medicine degree from Wake Forest University. His Internship and Residency were completed at the University of California.

Dr. Flamm has been a lifelong advocate of science over superstition and critical thinking over mysticism. He is an amateur astronomer and also has an interest in early electronic calculators, about which he has co-authored a book. Dr. Flamm has written several articles about the importance of evidence-based medicine and the dangers of faith healing. (See Faith Healing Confronts Modern Medicine (.pdf).)

In 2004, his debunking of the flawed Columbia University "pregnancy by prayer" study was covered by newspapers all over the world and featured in Time magazine. (See The Columbia University 'Miracle' Study: Flawed and Fraud [CSICOP] and Questioning Healing Prayer: A reevaluation of a study threatens to tarnish the reputations of two prestigious institutions [Time].)

One of the authors of the "miracle" study subsequently removed his name from the research and another was sentenced to federal prison for criminal fraud. (See More Questions on Healing Prayer: A medical journal responds to its critics [Time].)
