WINNIPEG - A respected orthopedic surgeon in Winnipeg has been suspended for six months for texting a photo of his penis to a woman he saw for double hip replacement surgery.
The Manitoba College of Physicians and Surgeons has ordered Dr. David Ames to see a psychiatrist or psychologist before he can practise again. He has also been ordered to pay $65,000 to cover the cost of the college's investigation.
The college says it hopes this professional misconduct ruling will be a powerful reminder to its members about the importance of respecting boundaries with patients.
