    Surgeon fined $3,000 for removing woman’s healthy kidney as a tumor

    A Florida surgeon who cut out a woman’s kidney after mistaking it for a tumor, is to pay a fine of $3,000 and undergo extra training on preoperative patient evaluation. He hadn’t properly read medical records before the operation.
    Ramon Vazquez made the blunder during a surgical procedure at the Wellington Regional Medical Center in April 2016. The man was tasked with cutting female patient Maureen Pacheco open so that two other surgeons could perform a back operation on her.


    But he noticed an abnormality, which he himself hastily diagnosed as “gynecological malignancy, lymphoma and/or other metastatic disease,” an administrative complaint by the Florida Department of Health reads. Vazquez decided to act on the alleged tumor without informing the patient. As result, the pelvic mass he discovered “was clipped, transected and removed in its entirety.”

    The better resolution might be; remove one of the Dr's kidney's and give it to the
    victim, and if not compatible just donate it to a kidney bank.

    $3000 fine and more education for cutting out a good kidney? That sounds about like what happens if a cop shoots out a kidney on an innocent person.
