According to the investigation, Bremhall used an argon beam coagulator to burn his autographs on the liver of patients.
The Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS), which deals with complaints against UK doctors, made a decision regarding a colleague who burned his initials on patients’ internal organs with a laser during operations.
The verdict was unanimous: Simon Bremhall was forever banned from medical activities.
According to the investigation, Bremhall, while working as a surgeon at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, used an argon beam coagulator to burn his autographs on the liver of patients.
The case was opened in 2013, when one of Bremhall’s colleagues found a burned-out stigma about four centimeters in length on a donor liver transplanted to a patient. It soon became clear that it was Bremhall who transplanted the organ.
After that, the surgeon, who imagined himself to be no one, resigned, and a few years later the court fined him 10 thousand pounds (more than 1 million rubles).
The year before last, Bremhall was suspended from work, but after a while he managed to challenge the court’s decision.
MPTS put an end to the “arts” of the surgeon just a few days ago: Bremhol was forbidden to practice until the end of his life, and his actions were called “professional arrogance.”
– Physical abuse of defenseless patients who are unconscious in the operating room seriously undermines the confidence of patients and society in the medical profession. And also inevitably inflicts a bad name on the profession as a whole, says the MPTS conclusion.
At the same time, the tribunal noted that none of the patients suffered physical harm, which, of course, does not diminish the guilt of the now former surgeon.
