A pregnant woman with appendicitis died after a trainee surgeon mistakenly removed one of her healthy ovaries, a tribunal heard.
Maria De Jesus, 32, underwent the operation at Queen's Hospital, Romford, Essex, after she was admitted with abdominal pains in October 2011. She died 19 days later after suffering a miscarriage.
Dr Yahya Al-Abed admitted he made a number of errors during the procedure, including removing her right ovary instead of her appendix.
Senior surgical consultant, Dr Babatunde Coker, is accused of failing in his role by not attending theatre to carry out the surgery himself or supervising the registrar.
Mrs De Jesus, who was 21-weeks pregnant, was discharged 10 days after the October 23 operation, but returned to the Romford hospital on November 7, still in serious pain.

Globalism at its finest.
“underwent the operation at Queen’s Hospital, Romford, Essex”
What, do they have obamacare in England already?
Well that’s the bad side. The good side is that it’s cheaper having minimum wage illegal aliens do these things instead of experts.
they have had Obamacare for years, it sucks. I wouldn’t have my toenails clipped by a doctor in England.
Welcome to CommieCare.
This kind of thing will be happening here much more frequently. In the government’s rush to garner all the cash and control they can, they will be lowering doctors’ salaries to the point where it would only make economic sense for a doctor from a third, fourth, fifth world medical school to be employed at an ObamaCare Hospital.
They have worse. They have single payer socialized medicine there.
That’s the bad side. The good side is that minimum wage illegal aliens doing the work makes it much cheaper.
Didn’t anyone else in attendance know an ovary from an appendix???
She’d have been better off at a veterinary clinic.
The names of both “surgeon” and victim are horrifically symbolic.
This was a planned assault to make the woman sterile
because SHE was the wrong religion.
Funny that they didn't mention "killing the patient" as one of the surgical errors.
Perhaps that wasn't an error, but a decree by the Queen's Death Panel.
From the names—I thought this happened somewhere in South Sudan....
This must be the “new” England...
...aka Formerly Great Britain.
That’s the first thing I thought. Surgical jihad.
Socialized medicine at work! Coming to America soon.

“After failing Anatomy 305 twice, the Dr was promoted by administrative action in spite of his poor grades. Racial and religious conventions prevented the male Doctor from access to adequate female anatomy for rigorous training. The use of organ definition posters on the theatre wall and on the trainees I phone were apparently ineffective in actual practice. “ said the herald for the National Medical Practice bureau.
