Patient accused Queen Elizabeth Hospital doctor of 'poor techniques' in removing polyps during colonoscopy

Cheung, a 53-year-old ulcerative colitis patient, needs to undergo colonoscopy screening at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) on a regular basis. On 13 June, his doctor found six polyps in Cheung’s colon during the colonoscopy. He then took the chance to remove them. Unfortunately, the patient experienced severe stomach pain after the colonoscopy procedure—and, later diagnosed of perforation. Cheung later accused his doctor of ‘poor techniques’ in removing polyps during the procedure.
