California medical board withdraws complaint against transplant surgeon
The Medical Board of California has withdrawn its complaint seeking to revoke or suspend the medical license of a San Francisco surgeon accused of trying to speed a potential organ donor's death.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.
