Plastic surgeon rapped for operating on wife claims he was under ‘coercive control’ 

While a tribunal agreed his misconduct occurred in “the context” of a dysfunctional relationship, it found this wasn’t an excuse

A plastic surgeon who claimed his then-wife used coercive control to force him to operate on her and prescribe her opioids has been reprimanded and fined $25,000 after protracted disciplinary proceedings.

The surgeon’s legal drama began over five years ago, when the Queensland Health Ombudsman referred him to a state tribunal for prescribing controlled drugs to his wife and two stepsons.
