Really? The news report I saw said the pediatrician said that she was not brain dead. If he hasn't examined her, what is he basing his opinion on? While I'm sure there are ways to video conference the patient and look at the records yet the report made it sound like he examined her at the hospital.
I feel bad for the family, the Doctors tell you the surgery is no big deal and then she ends up possibly brain dead? People need to know that any surgery is dangerous and there is an element of risk and it sounds like this was voluntary surgery, not a life threatening problem.
Dr. Paul A. Byrne is, um, an interesting fellow. I'll leave it at that.
