Dr Charlie Teo says he is no longer performing brain surgery in Australia after being “precluded” from operating in Australian hospitals. 

But Australian patients claim the neurosurgeon has been treating them in hospitals overseas, with one patient’s father saying he redrew $90,000 “off the house” to pay for his son’s surgery in Spain along with his travel and accommodation costs.
