The lead gynaecologist at The Canberra Hospital (TCH), Omar Adham, has received multiple complaints after patients experienced severe complications as a result of his surgeries. Most of the patients reportedly had problems after Dr Adham performed keyhole surgery, more specifically to aid endometriosis.
The federal regulator has confirmed that an investigation has been launched due to the number of complaints from previous patients of Dr Adham. Between 2013 and 2019 nine complaints were lodged against the Canberran gynaecologist.
A few Dr Adham’s former patients have stepped forth in a coverage by ABC News. These are women who had to be put in intensive care and has ended up with lasting pain after Adham’s surgical complications. The full story can be found here.
