Initials his work, probably let a resident use staples to close...........

The patient hasn't gotten over the initial shock.

You gotta stomp out organ vandalism early.  Sure, it starts with initials, next thing you know, your granny is in the recovery room with "Doc Johnson wuz hyre" burned into her spleen.

Where does it end?

/I'm really curious as to what his thought process was, in choosing to do this

What an odd story.

FARKING IDIOTS!

Surgeons always mark a tissue specimen, if possible, to assure identification.
This is entirely a NON STORY.

And staples are perfect for the less than magically skilled average meat sack working in the OR.

Well at least it wasn't done in Floriduh or no one has been caught yet.
Live in FL, will not get liver operation.

Did the surgeon have "born to lose" tattooed onto his forehead?


/Carlin would have disapproved

Bramhall used non-toxic argon gas to sear his initials onto the liver.

Oh good it was non-toxic. The searing part is okay too, right?

Depends, with the right fava beans and a nice Chianti, is OK.

FTA: "...  NHS Foundation Trust has suspended a surgeon while an internal investigation is completed."

Someone made a funny?

Wouldn't a branding iron on the patient's ass been more efficient? I guess doctor's are as stupid as the rest of us.

Traditionally this is the specimen that is removed and sent to the pathology folk though. Not the organ which is left inside the body, to be viewed by another surgeon at a future operation as in this case.

I often mark parts I install when I work on a car. It's helpful if future work is done knowing that a part has already been replaced and when. I suppose this is a similar mentality.

I don't really care if someone marks my liver if they're already in there.

Its a nice gesture & all but if he really wanted to help he'd have written "liver", way to confuse the next guy.

My guess? Somebody, prolly his PA, stopped him when he started to remove the liver.
Lesser of evils, eh?

/maybe just had the laser in hand and was "fooling around, you know, calibrating", lucky did not look into the end

I drive a 20yo daily.
'Marked parts" is not stranger.

Normally, he would be using the Argon Laser to coagulate blood vessels after opening the abdomen.
So there he is, lightsabre in hand and,,,

Pretty sure he used an Argon Gas Laser to get that sear, not just gas, no matter how noble.

Probably a Plasma coagulator.

When my ex gave birth to our son, 35 years ago, the doctor was joking with her that he was sewing in his initials  as he stitched up her episiotomy.  My ex thought that was hilarious.  Really.
