A routine appendix operation in Belgrade went horribly wrong when two surgeons started fighting and stormed from the operating room to settle their dispute outside.
according to a recent
surgeon Spasoje Radulovic was operating when fellow doctor Dragan Vukanic entered and made a remark that started a quarrel.
“At one moment Vukanic pulled the ear of the operating doctor, slapped him in the face and walked out,” the on duty anaesthesiologist said when describing the fight for a local newspaper.
Doctor Radulovic followed him out and an all-out fight ensued, resulting in bruises, a split lip, loose teeth and a fractured finger.
In spite of the chaos, the operation was thankfully completed successfully by an attending assistant doctor.
