Detroit-area neurosurgeon Aria O. Sabit was sentenced to 235 months in prison for his role in a $2.8 million health care fraud scheme in which he caused serious bodily harm to patients by performing unnecessary invasive spinal surgeries. Sabit owned and operated the Michigan Brain and Spine Physicians Group. He admitted deriving significant profits by convincing patients to undergo spinal fusion surgeries with “instrumentation” (medical devices designed to stabilize and strengthen the spine) that he never performed and billed public and private healthcare benefit programs for those fraudulent services.
