Healthy Kidney Removed From Patient, Second Surgery Needed

Medical error related to the removal of a healthy kidney from a cancer patient, in Scotland has raised resentment among the patient's family members //. Scottish National Party MSP, Alex Neil has urged the NHS Ayrshire and Arran to reveal the name of the involved surgeon.

He further intends to lodge a Freedom of Information request if the health board does not reveal the surgeon’s identity. He further demanded appropriate legal action to be taken against the offenders. 'We now need answers to establish exactly what went wrong,' demanded Neil.

Mr John Heron, 60, was admitted this month to the Ayr Hospital to for removal of his poorly functioning kidney. Following removal of the healthy kidney, he is now required to undergo another surgery to remove the diseased one. As a consequence of surgical fault, the patient may have to take up dialysis to remove toxic waste products from his body, throughout his lifetime.

'It is with deep regret that I confirm that a patient being cared for in the Ayr Hospital has had a healthy kidney removed. Our thoughts are with the patient and family, to whom we apologise for this tragic error. Staff are supporting the patient and family in planning for the best possible medical care for Mr Heron in the future,' said Bob Masterton, executive director for the NHS Ayrshire and Arran Trust.

Mr. John, son of Mr and Mrs. Heron said that the family was 'devastated by the disastrous professional errors that should never have happened. We, the family, want to be sure that no other family experiences this in the future.'
