It’s all about the brand: Surgeon accused of branding his initials into a patient’s liver

bramhallNews reports  say that Simon Bramhall [pictured here], Consultant HPB & Liver Transplant Surgeon in Birmingham, is accused of branding his initials into a transplant patient’s liver. The Telegraph‘s report, by Miranda Prynne, begins:

A surgeon has been suspended after allegedly branding his initials into a transplant patient’s liver. Consultant Simon Bramhall, 48, is accused of burning ‘SB’ onto a patient’s liver as he operated on him. The letters were spotted by a colleague during routine surgery on the unnamed patient. It is now feared the letters may have been imprinted onto hundreds of other transplant recipients….

Dr. Bramhall is a man of letters. His extensive CV lists numerous medical publications, including these:

Use of Marginal Donors.

    Together with every little thing which appears to be developing within this particular area, many of your perspectives are fairly stimulating. Having said that, I appologize, but I can not give credence to your whole idea, all be it radical none the less. It appears to us that your commentary are not completely justified and in reality you are generally yourself not really completely confident of the point. In any event I did enjoy reading it.
