Rajasthan Doctors Lose Med Registration To Practice

JAIPUR: Following the botched surgery allegedly performed by Dr Sanjay Dhankar, the Rajasthan Medical Council (RMC) revoked his registration to practice medicine on Wednesday. The council also cancelled the registration of eight other doctors, and suspended those of two more for a period of six months.

Dr Dhankar conducted the controversial surgery on May 15 at a private hospital in Jhunjhunu. He allegedly removed the healthy kidney of Eid Banu, a 30-year-old woman patient, by mistake instead of the diseased one.

The decision was taken at the general body meeting of RMC, held under the chairmanship of Dr Ravi Prakash Mathur, director (public health). Twenty-two nominated members from medical colleges too participated in the meeting. Dr Rajesh Sharma, registrar, RMC, stated that 25 cases in all came before the RMC’s panel and ethics committee.

Case of med negligence against doc in court now

Following the guidelines of the National Medical Commission, the registrations of doctors Sanjay Dhankhar, Ganpat Singh, M Sajid, M Afzal, Krishna Soni, Bomma Reddy Hari Krishna, Jaydeep Singh, and Baljeet Kaur were cancelled. The registrations of Dr Ajay Agarwal and Dr Suman Agarwal were suspended for a period of six months.

The state govt had already cancelled the registration of Dhankar Hospital, where the surgery was performed, under the Clinical Establishment Act. A health department report had also concluded the surgery as an instance of ‘medical negligence’.

“Dr Dhankar’s case was presented before the panel today (Wednesday). The medical negligence case against him is going on in the court. After going through the evidence and investigation report of the health department, his registration has been cancelled,” said Dr Sharma said.

“The council also found the degrees of two govt doctors, Dr Ganpat Singh and Dr Jaydeep Singh, as fake. The registration of two doctors, who were allegedly found involved in the sex determination of fetuses, has been suspended for six months. Besides, three other doctors in private hospitals were found to be working with fake degrees. Their registrations have also been cancelled,” he said.

The patient whose healthy kidney was removed is undergoing dialysis and treatment at the superspecialty hospital of SMS Medical College.
