Brain surgeon facing harsh accusations
Posted on Thursday, September 29th, 2011
A Corpus Christi brain surgeon has been accused of using harmful medical practices on his patients. More than six people have come forward, expressing their concern after being in his care.
The physician came to Texas in 2007 from Minnesota, where several medical malpractice lawsuits were brought against him, two of which involved wrongful death. At least six malpractice lawsuits were settled for $3.2 million. While his medical license has not been revoked in Minnesota, the doctor would have to be supervised by another physician for him to continue practicing medicine.
The Texas Medical Board says the surgeon is still able to work in Texas without restrictions. A TMB spokesman says that neurosurgery comes with many risks and potential bad outcomes and does not plan on halting his ability to practice medicine.
