Hanoi’s Viet Duc Hospital, one of Vietnam’s leading medical facilities, has suspended a surgeon and his team for mistakenly operating on a patient’s right leg instead of his left Tuesday.
The family of the 37-year-old patient, Tran Van Thao, said he had been diagnosed with the paralysis of a nerve in the left leg, which caused him to walk unsteadily.
They paid VND5.5 million (US$250) for the surgery, but were later asked to pay again after the surgeon found out he had cut open the wrong leg.
Tran Binh Giang, deputy director of the hospital, said the whole surgery team was at fault.
