A Nigerian medical practitioner practicing abroad has lost his license following outrageous performances.

A senior surgeon who accidentally removed a woman's ovary instead of her appendix has been struck off after being branded a 'danger' to patients.

The unnamed woman, known as Patient B, was treated by him when she was admitted for abdominal pain while he was working for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Trust in Sheffield, South Yorkshire.

During the operation, one of her ovaries was removed leaving her appendix - which was causing her great pain - in situ.

Dr Haruna botched up two further operations mistaking a lump of fat for an appendix in one case and a skin tag for a harmful lump in another.

Haruna who claims to have 25 years experience later dismissed the incidents as 'trifling errors' and said the appendix and fallopian tubes were similar 'worm-like structures which lie in a similar area.

The surgeon, who represented himself, told the Manchester hearing he had 'poor vision' at the time he carried out the surgery and claimed it would be 'harsh' to strike him off.

But at the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service a disciplinary panel found him guilty of misconduct and banned him from treating patients.

However, she was lucky she was not of child-bearing age as it could have affected her fertility.
