John Bunker, who in later life described himself as "a surgeon at heart" gave up surgery when he finished his military service and devoted the rest of his life to making surgery safer, first as an anaesthetist, and later as an epidemiologist and health technology critic. He was among the first to warn of the pitfalls of America's fee-for service healthcare system. In 1970 he showed that part of the reason that Britons lived longer than Americans was because they underwent less surgery, with all its hazards. He also warned against adopting new operations before their outcomes were properly understood. In the same period he investigated operation rates, mortality statistics and surgical workloads in the US and Britain, where he later worked.
