A Nigerian-born surgeon in the UK, Dr Lawal Haruna, has been branded ‘a danger to patients’ after he accidentally removed a woman’s ovary instead of her appendix in a botched operation.
Dr. Lawal, who has been struck off and cannot practise as a medical doctor again in the UK botched up three operations over the course of two years -including removing a woman’s ovary because he said the appendix and fallopian tubes were similar ‘worm-like structures’ in the same area.
All the incidents happened between 2013 and 2015 while Dr Haruna was working for the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Trust which oversees six hospitals.
The 59-year-old, who claims to have 25 years experience has been banned from treating patient by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service having been found guilty of misconduct.
