Nigerian Surgeon Mistakenly Removes Fallopian Tube For Appendix

Dr. Haruna Lawal has been trending all over news sites after he was dismissed of his duties for removing a patient’s ovary instead of her appendix. This was not Dr. Lawal’s first offence as he has previously removed a woman’s Fallopian tube and a pad of fat from another man instead of their appendices.

His colleagues have termed his mistakes as “never events” because they are just not supposed to happen. When he was asked about the events he termed them as ‘trifling errors’ and blames his mistakes on his poor sight. He has apologized to the victims but he was still dismissed by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service for his misconduct and lack of empathy for the patients. Dr. Lawal is 59 years old and has been practicing for over 25 years.
