  • Master Surgeon sacked from Swedish Institute due to Fraudulent Malpractice

A master surgeon by the name of Paolo Macchiarini was sacked with immediate effect from a Swedish institute due to fraudulent malpractice.

Paolo Macchiarini was a super surgeon who was feted in the media as a maestro of medical science. A trendsetter and genius in the field of stem cell R&D, he radically transformed windpipe surgery.

Serving as a personal physician to many dignitaries and celebs, this man claims to have operated on such VIPs as the Pope and POTUS Obama and his family. Yet today his career lies in tatters since he has been disgraced due to his pathological lying. 

Sweden’s highly-acclaimed Karolinska University fired him on Wednesday, according to the Guardian. The reasons given were many and they included negligence of duty and bluffing on his CV.

The human resource director of the institute said that it was an impossibility for the organization to have any more contact with this man. His acts had harmed many individuals along with their extended families.

In fact, Paolo had deeply damaged the reputation of Karolinska University. The surgeon has fought back by saying that he refuses to accept these allegations. They are false accusations and he will be using the long arm of the law to get back at the university. 

Paolo was the first surgeon who had transplanted a windpipe made from stem cells in 2008. The procedure was a controversial one. Other researchers had participated in the process of surgery.

However, 2016 proved to be an unlucky year for Paolo. A documentary titled Experiments that appeared on television gave proof of the fact that Paolo had used his patients as guinea pigs. He had applied his radical methods on them even though the techniques had zero chances of success. 

Six of the eight patients who had received treatment at his hands had died later on. Furthermore, his claim that the windpipes had been tested on animals proved to be a dud.

He had even been guilty of tweaking test results in a sneaky manner. The criticism seemed to build up as each day progressed. Paolo was a true renaissance man who took giant steps and boldly ventured where no one had ever dared to go.

However, this courage and bravado cost him dearly. Certain other facts about his private life were revealed and so Sweden which prides itself on its scientific approach had to fire him from his career support system. Paolo’s pack of lies has been laid out in the open for all to see. There is nowhere he can hide his shameful malpractice history from the world.
