The district court rejects convicted doctor: Søren Ventegodt must still wait

In eight years, the former doctor and the alternative therapist Søren Ventegodt, been barred from treating patients because he in 2012 was sentenced to 30 days imprisonment and deprived of its authorization ’until further notice’.

Now the Copenhagen city Court extended frakendelsen of the licence, so Søren Ventegodt continue ’until further notice’ are not allowed to work as a doctor or alternative therapist, where he is to carry out ’invasive’ treatments of gynaecological, physiotherapeutic or sexologisk or another character.

The 59-year-old Søren Ventegodt was then judged according to there are three statues, but not the criminal code, for having carried out treatments, which was unprofessional and of a sexual nature.

Two women were with in his research project on ’vaginal acupressure’, which among other things implied that a 23-year-old woman was kissed on the kønsdelen, and she got vaginal acupressure in front of the other students, so her hymen was blasted.

the Copenhagen city Court ruled that continue to preclude Søren Ventegodt from to treat patients today. Thus followed the district court the claim from the prosecution and from the Danish Agency for Patient safety, who opposed Søren Ventegodts desire to get his lægeautorisation back.

In court, argued senior prosecutor, Sidsel Klixbüll, there is still a significant risk that Søren Ventegodt will commit similar acts, by which he is convicted, and that he has not taken a distance from its previous processes.

In court argued, among other things, that the latest research shows that the form of treatments, which he did, to have effect.

After the warrant said the senior prosecutor, Sidsel Klixbüll, that she is satisfied that the district court has granted the prosecution's favour, so that future patients will not be exposed to similar treatments.

Søren Ventegodts lawyer Hanne Rahbæk, do not want to comment on byrettens decision, including whether it will be in the ditch to the Eastern high Court.

Søren Ventegodts treatments was revealed by the Extra Magazine in 2005, but seven years before the judgment against him dropped. He was charged with assault on five patients, among them the two women, who both explained in court that they were in love in the doctor.

He called himself 'Dr. Stuff, the good doctor', but Extra the Magazine dubbed him 'Dr. Clammy'.

The 23-year-old was subjected to treatments of a sexual nature, which supposedly should cure her of sexual abuse in childhood.

The second woman, 22, was at least once ’vaginal acupressure’ at home in the doctor's own bed, and was penetrated in the anus. It happened as part of a treatment, as Ventegodt described as ’controlled sexual abuse’.
