California medical board withdraws complaint against transplant surgeon

Los Angeles Times, June 4, 2009

The Medical Board of California has withdrawn its complaint seeking to revoke or suspend the medical license of a San Francisco surgeon accused of trying to speed a potential organ donor's death. The surgeon, Hootan Roozrokh, MD, was also charged criminally in the case, which involved a failed attempt to acquire organs from a comatose 25-year-old patient who suffered from a wasting neurological condition. In December, jurors found Roozrokh not guilty of dependent adult abuse.
