A plastic surgeon in Kentucky was arrested after allegedly showing up drunk to perform a surgery. 

Unbelievable!

Dr. Theodore Gerstle, of Lexington Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, was scheduled to operate around noon on Monday at the Baptist Heath Lexington, but staff at the hospital were alerted that the physician was intoxicated, hospital spokesperson Ruth Ann Childers told the Lexington Herald Leader.

WKYT reports that Ruth Ann Childers, a spokeswoman for Baptist Health Lexington, says the hospital received a report of a physician who showed up for surgery while possibly intoxicated. According to Childers, hospital administration put their procedures in place and the chief medical officer spoke to Dr. Gerstle. Childers says Dr. Gerstle decided to leave the hospital on foot after being confronted and that’s when police were called.

“Patient safety is always our number one concern. This will be thoroughly investigated,” said Childers in a statement.

According to the website for Lexington Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Gerstle is a physician at the practice. Childers says Dr. Gerstle’s privileges at Baptist Health Lexington have been suspended and he will not be practicing until the issue has been investigated and resolved. Childers tells WKYT that Dr. Gerstle had only one procedure scheduled for Monday and it had not yet started when the allegation against him was made.

While it’s unclear what type of surgery Gerstle was scheduled to perform, the practice’s website states he specializes in migraine headaches, and a variety of plastic surgery treatments, Fox News reports.

Can you imagine having a drunk doctor doing plastic surgery on you?

Simply unbelievable.
