Aberdeen brain tumour surgeon Emmanuel Labram guilty of dishonest conduct

A cancer surgeon who lied about removing a patient's brain tumour at an Aberdeen hospital has been found guilty of misleading and dishonest conduct.

Emmanuel Labram, of Maryculter, faced a Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service hearing after the incident at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary in September 2008.

He misled the patient, who eventually sought private treatment, lied to colleagues and forged documents.

The hearing, which will decide on the professional penalty, continues.

The MPTS panel ruled the doctor may have genuinely believed he had removed the lesion.

However, he was found guilty of misleading and dishonest conduct for trying to cover his tracks when he realised this was not the case.

The harshest penalty available is a lifetime ban from the medical profession.
