Medical News Now title German surgeons admit to falsely diagnosing patients with cancer after the doctors wrongly performed the procedure in a German hospital article Medical Today Now title Doctors misdiagnosed patients with cervical cancer at a German cancer hospital article The doctors who performed a cervical cancer procedure in Berlin have admitted they made a mistake when they performed the cervical cancer surgery.
The hospital in the German city of Zagreb said on Tuesday that it has banned the doctor from performing the procedure.
Zagrebs chief medical doctor, Gerd Pälter, told the Zagorist daily newspaper that the doctors were informed of the incident and they immediately suspended the practice.
He added that the hospital had issued a letter to the doctors, asking them to apologize and not perform the procedure again.
Pärter also said that the incident would be investigated.
The incident has reignited a controversy over the treatment of cervical cancer in Germany.
In May, two doctors who had performed a similar procedure in Germany were found to have been wrongfully diagnosing cancer patients.
The doctors were sentenced to three months of suspended prison terms, while one of them, Dr. Ulrich Wahl, was fined $20,000.
The two doctors are appealing against their conviction and the prison sentences, saying they were mistaken about their diagnosis of cervical cervical cancer.
Last month, a court in Frankfurt convicted a doctor for falsely diagnosed and misdiagnoses cervical cancer patients in the city of Frankfurt.
Cervical cancer is a rare and aggressive type of cancer that affects about 4,000 people in Germany each year.
