Transplant Surgeon Removed From Medical Register For Initialing Livers


This is the wrong way to leave your mark on a patient’s life. 57-year-old surgeon Simon Bramhall pled guilty to two charges of assault by beating back in 2017 after using an argon beam machine to burn his initials into the livers of two patients while working as a liver transplant surgeon in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, England. On Tuesday, Bramhall was officially removed from the medical register for what he did; he said he did it to “relieve tension” in the operating room, but the medical tribunal said it was arrogance and that he didn’t realize it was a big deal, even after he was questioned about it.
