While this story may sound like a television show, this is a real deal. Sometimes, you can't make this stuff up. I cannot add any more comedy to this, so I'll quote it verbatim below.
BELGRADE (Reuters) -- A routine appendix operation in Belgrade went badly wrong when two surgeons started fighting and stormed from the operating theater to settle their dispute outside, the daily Politika reported Wednesday.Now, the Doctor Anonymous blog has just received the exclusive footage of this altercation from Belgrade, Serbia. The video is pretty grainy. I guess it's from a security camera in the operating room. What's a security camera doing there? Who knows?
Surgeon Spasoje Radulovic was operating when his colleague Dragan Vukanic entered and made a remark that started a quarrel, said the anesthesiologist on duty.
"At one moment Vukanic pulled the ear of the operating doctor, slapped him in the face and walked out," she said.
Radulovic followed and an all-out fight ensued, resulting in bruises, a split lip, loose teeth and a fractured finger.
The operation was completed successfully by the attending assistant doctor.
But, because I'll do anything for all of my readers, and I'll do just about anything for ratings, here is the Doctor Anonymous exclusive footage of the fighting video. Enjoy!
