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!
