Texas doctor demands trial

A Texas doctor is demanding a trial to determine the outcome of a case brought against him by the Texas Medical Board in which patients say he conducted unnecessary stent implants.

One patient, who refused bypass surgery, received 31 stents when he was the doctor’s patient. The TMB has accused him of violating standard-of-care for allegedly implanting un-needed stents, ICD implants, and angiograms to nine patients. The doctor argues that he still believes the stents were necessary, but today he might reconsider his decision since his medical practices have come under fire.

The doctor has regained his license and is still practicing medicine.

Nine Texas doctors reviewed by Texas Medical Board

In October nine Texas abortion doctors will go before a Texas Medical Board review panel after allegations of illegal disposal of patient records and other violations were reported.

The reports come from the anti-abortion, Christian activist group, “Operation Rescue,” which is based in Kansas. The organization claims that the Texas abortionists also improperly disposed of medical waste and violated state parental-involvement laws after a three month investigation. The review panel will allow the “Operation Rescue” and each doctor to share their side of the issue and then it will decide whether disciplinary actions are necessary.

If the Texas Medical Board believes there were violations, the physicians could be fined, require additional oversight, or be force to take continuing education classes.

Octomom blames fertility doctor

Nadya  Suleman, known in the media as the Octomom, recently announced she was drugged when she signed papers her doctor gave her that allowed him to implant 12 embryos inside of her. She claims she was not lucid and on Valium and other drugs when her fertility doctor, Michael Kamarava, gave her the consent forms.

Kamarava lost his license last month, convicted by the state of “gross negligence and repeated negligent acts of an excessive number of embryo transfers.” Kamarava defends his actions, stating that Suleman wanted the embryos and was following through with his patient’s wishes.

Cardiologist’s License Restricted for Controversial Stem Cell Therapy

A Florida cardiologist recently had his medical license suspended because members of the Board of Medicine wanted to prevent him from performing stem cell transplants that have not been approved and have not been shown to work in the treatment of diseases.

The cardiologist began holding educational seminars to teach people about the usefulness of stem cells. He also began transplanting stem cells into the organs of disabled patients, with claims that it would cure their disabilities, although no research has proven that stem cells can cure or treat disabilities. His patients’ results were mixed, as one man got better and another died almost immediately following the surgery.

It is not clear if t he cardiologist will be incurring any legal action for his surgeries, or if he will lose his license, however, he is still performing surgeries in the Dominican Republic and holding seminars.
