Eye Surgeon At Dublin Clinic Faced Misconduct Charge In The U.K.

Ireland(prwindow)- December 06 2007 -An Eye Surgeon who narrowly avoided a serious professional misconduct sanction in Britain is now operating in Dublin.
Ballsbridge,Dublin.Dec,06,2007--Dr. Anupam Chatterjee was the subject of a British General Medical Council (GMC) fitness to practice hearing in 2003 after a patient on whom he performed Laser Surgery accused the Doctor of permanently damaging his sight.

The Manchester-based Doctor was cleared of the charge but admitted during the hearing that he had gone against guidelines warning Doctors not to operate on both eyes on the same day.

The guideline was intended to make sure that any potential damage suffered by patients with complications would be limited to only one eye.

After his eyes were left permanently damaged, Manchester lawyer Paul Burton complained to the GMC saying he had not been warned of the potential risk. 'He did not discuss any of the risks associated with the operation and he treated both eyes at once. The recommendation is to treat one and wait at least a month before treating the other,' he told the hearing. As a result of his surgery Mr Burton has been left in frequent pain with 'starburst and halo effects' and blurred vision in each eye.

Dr. Chatterjee conceded to the hearing that he had not personally carried out a pre-consultation but insisted that Mr. Burton had been examined correctly by others and warned of all of the risks.

Now employed by a Dublin Clinic, the National Eye Centre, Dr. Chatterjee was unavailable for comment last night.

A spokesman for the National Eye Centre also declined to comment.

Among the company directors is Austin Kelly who, together with his wife, owns the Specs Express holding company and numerous Specs Express retail outlets.
