A senior Nigerian surgeon who accidentally removed a woman’s ovary instead of appendix in the UK has been struck off, after being branded a ‘danger to patients.

Dr Lawal Haruna, 59, botched up three operations in two years, including removing a woman’s ovary which he mistook for appendix, mistaking a lump of fat for an appendix in one case, and a skin tag for a harmful lump in another.
The woman identified by the hospital as Patient B, was treated by Dr Lawal,when she was admitted for abdominal pain, while he was working for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Trust in Sheffield, South Yorkshire.

But at the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service, a disciplinary panel found him guilty of misconduct and banned him from treating patients.

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.

He added during a Manchester hearing that he had ‘poor vision’ at the time he carried out the surgery, and claimed it would be ‘harsh’ to strike him off.
