53 year old, Simon Bramhall, has admitted to marking his initials on his patients.
Bramhall admitted to assaulting his patients at Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital back in 2013.
To stop livers bleeding surgeouns use a beam that can also burn the surface of the liver to sketch out areas of operation.
It does not harm the liver and the marks dissapear.
It has been described as a “highly unusual and complex case.”
Bramhall was suspended when another surgeon saw the branding.
He pleaded guilty to two charges and denied a charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
