Italian police have arrested 13 doctors from a private hospital in Milan who allegedly performed unnecessary surgery to claim more insurance money.

"At least five patients at the Santa Rita clinic in Milan died after operations that were not needed, investigators said. The former lawyer of the clinic was also arrested.

According to investigators, the entire team of surgeons from the clinic's thoracic team were involved in the fraud.

Colonel Riccardo Rapanotti, a police spokesman, said the operations were "useless, damaging, ill-considered and inexplicable given the cases of the patients". The surgeons performed 10 lung transplants allegedly in order to cure tuberculosis.

One 92-year-old woman was operated on three times in seven months and died under the knife."
