Patient calls him 'yaar', angry doc leaves surgery midway

A city-based doctor, specialising in hair transplant surgeries, on Tuesday left his patient midway in the operation theatre after administering him with local anaesthesia, saying that his client manifested ‘unpalatable behaviour’ for which he would not perform the surgery.

The doctor walked out of the OT in a huff leaving his client. His balding client, Sector 21 resident Akshay Kumar, waited for a while hoping that the doctor would return and finish the procedure. That didn’t happen. Akshay then walked out of the clinic to the nearest police station and lodged a complaint against the doctor.

By then, Akshay’s dream of seeing himself once again with full hair on his head had come down crashing. More upsetting for him was that before the surgery, the remaining little hair too was shaved off for sanitisation purpose.

The doctor too filed a counter complaint against Akshay accusing him of misbehaving with the women medical staff at his clinic and using abusive language every now and then. The police were flummoxed, first at seeing the young man walk to the police station with bandaged head and sporting an OT cap and then at the nature of his complaint.Akshay says his ageing doctor lost temper and left him midway through the procedure because he addressed him a few times as yaar (friend).

“I was having pain even after the local anaesthesia was given. In pain, I addressed the doctor as yaar, to which he felt offended and refused to continue the hair transplant procedure and walked out of the OT,” he claimed.

For the police, it was hard to figure out the IPC’s sections under which the case could be registered. The intervention of the DSP (Central) Ashish Kapoor was sought.A medical examination was carried out in a city government hospital to know if Akshay was fine after the dose given by his doctor. The doctor reportedly told the police that he had injected a drug on the head that reduces sensation during the procedure.

Although the police registered the complaints from both sides, sources said, the two warring factions later arrived at a compromise. The DSP suggested to Akshay that in case he still has a grievance against the doctor, he could approach the consumer court.
