Simon Bramhall ordered to carry out 120 hours of unpaid work after admitting assault offences relating to transplant surgeries
A surgeon who burned his initials on to the livers of two patients during transplant surgery has been given a 12-month community order and fined Â£10,000.
Simon Bramhall, 53, used an argon beam â€“ used to stop livers bleeding during operations and to highlight an area to be worked on â€“ to sign â€œSBâ€� into his patientâ€™s livers. The marks left by argon do not impair the liverâ€™s function and disappear by themselves.
