I am not a doctor but did Google Medical Madoff as you suggested and found an article about a Dr. Reuben at Baystate in Springfield, Mass. who allegedly faked data related to post orthopedic surgery pain.

You can also google "celebrex adhesions" and find information on a study involving mice and post abdominal surgery adhesions done at Children's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts. The names of the doctors listed are Dr. Puder and Dr. Green.

I might not yet have found the informtion linking Dr. Reuben to mice study at Children's Hospital in Boston. But based on what I found so far, it looks to me like different medical studies, different kinds of surgery, and different doctors involved in the research. I'm not advocating Celebrex one way or the other, just think it's important that we look into these kind of claims for ourselves, which I believe is also what you're suggesting. >>
