Some of you know, some of you don't, that I own Surface Medical and run a blog for physicians in cosmetic medicine over at Medical Spa MD.
I deal with physicians all the time and regularly comment on the differences between the regular practice of medicine and retail cosmetic medicine. Here's a comment on the differences between medicine in the US and other countries.
...Surgeon Naum Ciomu, who had been suffering from stress at the time, had been operating on patient Nelu Radonescu, 36, to correct a testicular malformation when he suddenly lost his temper.
Grabbing a scalpel, he sliced off the penis in front of shocked nursing staff, and then placed it on the operating table where he chopped it into small pieces before storming out of the operating theatre at Bucharest hospital.
...Vice-president of the Romanian Doctors Union, Vasile Astarastoae, said: 'Ciomu's case is a dangerous precedent for all Romanian doctors. In future doctors may have to think very carefully about what work they undertake.'
Because obviously, the last thing you want is a doctor thinking carefully about the work they're doing.
While medicine in America might not be perfect, it's better than checking out of the hospital with your penis in a baggie.
