The Private Medical Professionals Association has thrown its weight behind Dr. Dominic Obeng-Andoh, the Director of Obengfo Hospital, who has been remanded into custody for the death of Stacy Offei-Darko, Deputy Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of National Entrepreneurship Innovative Programme (NEIP).

The group deny claims Dr. Obeng-Andoh of public assertion that the Doctor, who has been charged with the offence of operating without licence is a quack.

Speaking to Accra-based Atinka FM, Dr. Isaac Morrison, President of the Association, stated that Dr. Obeng-Andoh is a product of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology Medical School and has been practicing for the past 20 years as a doctor in the country.

He revealed that the Obengfo Hospital boss was put on the permanent register of medical practitioners by the Medical and Dental Council in 2000 after completing his house job.

He, therefore, rejected the public claims that seemed to suggest the Dr. Obeng-Andoh is a quack medical practitioner. 

He pointed out that the association is in no way defending Dr. Obeng-Andoh but that they are seeking to vouch for his integrity and qualification.

He indicated that the fact that a patient lost his or her life does not mean the doctor is a bad one or quack.

Meanwhile, records at the Obengfo Hospital indicate that, that was not the first time the late Stacy Offei-Darko had visited the facility.

According to the records, she has been frequenting the Advanced Body Sculpt Centre since 2014 for regular check-ups in preparation for her first liposuction surgery which was done in 2017.

The records cast doubt on her mother’s assertion that Ms. Offei-Darko went to the hospital for malaria treatment.

The record also showed that the deceased on May 27, 2017 did several liposuction surgeries at Obengfo Hospital which were successful.

Per the records, areas for the surgery included “Upper back, mid back, lower back, waist, upper abdomen, lower abdomen and love handles.

It also showed that the deceased consented to all the surgical procedures undertaken by Dr. Obeng-Andoh which were witnessed by one Debora.

This was contained in the hospital’s Patient’s Consent and Release statement.

Background

The medical doctor has already been remanded into custody by an Accra Magistrate Court for allegedly causing the death of Stacy Offei-Darko.

The deceased, according to police, went to the hospital for a liposuction and fat transfer surgery but died on May 21, 2018 at about 4pm while on admission after the surgery.

NOTE: further checks by peacefmonline on the MDC website require All medical and dental practitioners to be registered with the Medical and Dental Council and be in Good Standing to practice in Ghana. It is against the law to practice in Ghana without being registered with the Medical and Dental Council Ghana, it is also unlawful to employ and engage the services of a practitioner who is not registered with the council.
