A neurosurgeon at Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals, Aaron Musara, is in hot soup after he successfully performed an unauthorised operation on a patient.
Musara who is also a senior lecturer in the neurosurgery unit at the University of Zimbabwe has now approached the courts seeking an order compelling Parirenyatwa authorities to nullify an adverse report against him which is authored and kept in his personal file.
The neurosurgeon argues in his application that on many occasions, qualified anaesthetists were cancelling essential operations citing petty reasons thereby putting the lives of patients in danger.
Musara stated in his application that he lost a patient, Gloria Shambare, in 2018 as a result of the attitude of anaesthetists who for 52 days refused to render their services.
He said that this behaviour prompted him to take an independent decision to administer general anaesthesia on one Shadreck Musekiwa, a decision that saved the patient’s life.
Musara is however in trouble for violating protocol since he is not a qualified anaesthetist. A neurosurgeon is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of disorders of the central and peripheral nervous system including trauma, tumours, vascular disorders, infections of the brain or spine and stroke.
