Some Alberta doctors are pushing back against recommendations in the recently released Alberta Health Services performance review that call for cutbacks and even the removal of government funding for dozens of surgeries.

One section of the $2-million report, conducted by Ernst and Young for the Alberta government, takes aim at a list of 44 surgeries (more than 50,000 cases) defined by the U.K.'s National Health Service as "of limited clinical value."

The report recommends a targeted reduction could result in $47 million to $100 million in savings.
