    Heedis, you live in Cape Town. You traveled all the way to India to seek treatment. This hospital is right on your doorstep. Perhaps you could pop in and investigate it? This Thomas Prins chap shouldn't be too hard to track down.
    Hi Joe Burg.

    This is freeking me out. I am i missing something?Last time i checked Doctors and clinics in South Africa did not practice this for SCI. Believe me i did my homework. I spent lots of time and energy questioning doctors and neurosurgeons here about the availability of stem cells for SCI. Most of the time i got a straigth forward answer. " It is not a proven treatment and will probably not be available in my lifetime in South Africa". Thats why i travelled to India. So this is news. I will make it my duty to visit this hospital. I pass it every day to and from work. This will be interesting....

    CAPE. - The legal team of the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) is investigating the complaint submitted to him after a "stamseloperasie" performed here.

    The council yesterday confirmed to The Citizen that he was of the Association of Neurosurgeons of South Africa complaints received against Dr. Adriaan Liebenberg, the surgeon doing the operation in October on a paralyzed man in the Melomed performed Hospital in Belleville.

    The association Liebenberg also requested the referral on his website that he is a member of the professional organization to remove. This has since been done, after the association's secretary, prof. Allan Taylor, said Liebenberg is not a member of the association.

    After the HPCSA's legal team looked at the documents submitted by the association, the next possible step is to refer it to a committee that oversees professional conduct, said the council asked.

    Should the committee decide on further steps will set up a charge sheet and a further investigation. Such an investigation can be attended by the public and the media.

    The experimental surgery on October 10 and 24 at Tommy Prince (32) of Milnerton performed.

    Liebenberg and Gert Jordaan, the man who manufactured the stem cells, did not have approval from an ethics committee. The procedure is not subject to peer evaluation, or published in a journal, and the Medicines Control Council has not given permission for it may not be executed.

    While the former health minister, Barbara Hogan, a procedure of Jordan in 2008 and one dr. Burger (apparently a patient who was not involved) approved, withdrew the HPCSA this approval in 2009, because all the other procedures are lacking and they had many questions.

    The association's complaint was sent to explain to Liebenberg and he can respond if he wants. If he responds, his explanation later be used as evidence.

    After his response was received or not, the council will decide whether he will appoint a board of inquiry or not. If so, independent experts used oral evidence, including. The HPCSA's decision is final unless appealed.
