Dr. Death - podcast

Postby Blue Jackets » Wed Mar 13, 2019 6:21 am

Dr. Death is a 2018 podcast produced by Wondery that tells the story of Christopher Duntsch, a Texas surgeon who was convicted of gross malpractice after thirty-one of his patients were left seriously injured after he operated on them, and two patients died during his operation.

‘Dr. Death’ podcast: Surgeon recalls Christopher Duntsch’s botched procedures: ‘He couldn’t operate at all’
“He couldn’t operate at all,” Kirby told Fox News. “That led me to believe he was a sociopath or a psychopath, something of that sort. … I’ve been in the business for decades and this guy is not normal. He turned his best friend into a quadriplegic.”

Wondery, the podcast network behind the hit true crime series “Dirty John,” recently launched the story of “Dr. Death,” the true story of Dr. Duntsch, a neurosurgeon whose horrifying deeds continue to haunt Texas.

The 47-year-old doctor operated on a total of 38 patients, and 31 of them were left permanently paralyzed or seriously injured. Two others died.

Jeeeeeze, so he had 5 operations that weren't failures. How is something like this allowed to happen?

He kept changing hospitals and he would lie about his past, but still, follow-up on that!

:( Listening in the car today. Poor Jerry. As it is described in the podcast "so much bone was removed from the neck, the head was no longer attached to the body".
