Nigerian Surgeon Removes Lady's Ovary Instead Of Her Appendix by neky2016: 1:12pm On May 13, 2017
A 59-year-old Nigerian Senior Surgeon, Dr Lawal Haruna, who reportedly removed a woman’s ovary accidentally instead of her appendix has been struck off after being branded a ‘danger to patients.


He allegedly 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. The unnamed woman, known as Patient B, was treated by him when she was admitted for abdominal pain while he was working for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Trust in Sheffield, South Yorkshire.

During the operation, one of her ovaries was removed leaving her appendix – which was causing her great pain – in situ. A tribunal heard how it was lucky she was not of child-bearing age as it could have affected her fertility.

Dr Haruna botched up two further operations mistaking a lump of fat for an appendix in one case and a skin tag for a harmful lump in another. Colleagues described the operations as poorly executed and ‘never events’. Haruna who claims to have 25 years experience later dismissed the incidents as ‘trifling errors’ and said the appendix and fallopian tubes were similar ‘worm-like structures which lie in a similar area.


The surgeon, who represented himself, told the Manchester hearing he had ‘poor vision’ at the time he carried out the surgery and claimed it would be ‘harsh’ to strike him off. But at the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service a disciplinary panel found him guilty of misconduct and banned him from treating patients.

trifling error, he said?

They could have removed his own head from the body also and claim it was a trifling error!

Moreover, what did he remove, the fallopian tube or ovary?

How did he miss the incision?

McBurney Point is the incision for Appendicectomy, different from oophorectomy. It easy to rupture the Ascending colon than the ovary.

Lol Aboki people and NZUZU na IBERIBE are 5 & 6. God forbid that a quota system doctor should treat me whether in Nigeria or abroad. They used this same qouta system and catchment area to destroy the meritocracy and excellence the British people left behind and in its place they brought in mediocrity under different guises yet people keep wondering how Nigeria went to the dogs. Nigeria would have gone very far today if not for these barberians from NW & NE. Ojukwu fought for 3 years to keep them away from us, later Orkar tried to remove them from the map in his botched coup. Today, they have succeeded in pulling us down into the mud with them! SMH.

We ALL know he would have gotten away with it here in Nigeria.

His colleagues through the "old boy" network would have buried it. Heard of MANY similar cases.

If God wants to deal with you, He would make all the circumstances conducive for your punishment. i.e,

God accepted his prayers on visa issues, immigration and he finally went to display his ineptitude to someone who would report.

He is done for....loss of license, likely jail time
