Board of Healing Arts Won't Discipline Dr. Who Operated on the Wrong Side of a Woman's Brain

Conduct Rewarded Leads to Conduct Repeated

The Missouri State Board of Healing Arts has chosen to close its file without action in a case involving Dr. Armond Levy, who operated on the wrong side Regina Turner's brain in April of 2013. The surgery was conducted at St. Clare Health Center in Fenton, MO. While Dr. Levy no longer works with SSM, he is currently running St. Louis Neurosurgery LLC in Valley Park and continues to perform surgeries despie having left Ms. Turner requiring around-the-clock care after her botched operation.

What Does it Take for a Negligent Doctor to Receive Discipline?

The Board of Healing Arts is mostly comprised of physicians who appear to protecting themselves. You would think at the very least a wrist-slap or a public warning of “don't do it again” would serve their interests, but no. After leaving an innocent patient with a lifetime of medical complications and difficulties, these refuse to deliver any semblence of discipline. These folks must be self serving and impotent. They present danger to the citizens of Missouri.
