Authority to intervene: the board of Directors shall not operate kønslæber

It's the end of that perform intimkirurgi on the well-known private hospital H. C. Andersen the Clinic in Odense.

the Agency for Patient safety have reduced the professional work for both privathospitalets current owner and ceo, plastic surgeon Henrik Toft Nielsen, and the previous owner, Jens Pilegaard Bjarnesen, which is one of the country's wealthiest plastic surgeons, so that none of them is allowed to make interventions on the external female genitalia anymore.

'the Agency has assessed that there are reasonable grounds to suspect that Henrik Toft Nielsen at the intervention of external female genitalia has shown serious or repeated wrongdoing in professional activities, which can be assumed to be a danger to patient safety', says the decision of the 8. november 2018.

According to the Agency for Patient safety, Henrik Toft Nielsen in all nine cases, as the agency has undergone, 'has guided and provided the patients sufficiently in advance of the procedure'.

Exactly the same formulations used on his older colleague Jens Pilegaard Bjarnesen, who still works at the clinic. It is, however, two cases.

Intimkirurgi covers operations on and around the genitals - typically the reduction of the internal kønslæber or liposuction of the venusberg.

In Denmark, it is - unlike many other countries - not allowed to get surgery its kønslæber less of a purely cosmetic reasons, but only if you have physical discomfort for example pain when cycling or sex.

Last year was 215 women operated on at the public expense. Less than five got the surgery carried out privately, according to figures from the Sundhedsdatastyrelsen. The number of operated at the public expense peaked apparent in 2005, when almost 400 were under the knife.

Over 12 percent of young women aged 15 to 24 years corresponded in a large study of the Danish sex life, Project Sexus that they are either dissatisfied or very dissatisfied with their kønsdeles appearance. Satisfaction rises apparently, the older the respondents are.


Ekstra Bladet sought access to the two plastikkirurgers cases in the Danish Patient safety. The agency has identified four cases, but refused to hand them over to the Extra Leaf in an anonymised form. According to there are three statues apply the ban in two years.

Henrik Toft Nielsen does not want to show its correspondence with the Committee for Patient safety for the Extra Magazine.

the Patient does not want to comment on the specific cases, but refers in an email to there are three statues, where it appears that the agency 'can temporarily restricting an authorized sundhedspersons business, where there are reasonable grounds to suspect that sundhedspersonen a danger to patient safety in one or more academic areas due to a serious or repeated wrongdoing in professional activities, or because the person is unfit for the exercise of the profession'.

Confrontation

According to the Agency for Patient safety have shown a 'repeated serious wrongdoing in professional activities, which can be assumed to be a danger to patient safety' in nine cases. What are the some cases that have made it?

- In Denmark, the rules are that there must be functional genes, and it is also only them, we have operated on in the clinic, but their criticism was that there was made a recommendation from the Gynaecological company from 2011, I think, as we have never been made aware of. Our clients come with pain by cycling and sexual intercourse in particular, and the criticism went on, that we should have informed them much more thoroughly on the amendment of the cykelsadel, sexual advice and psychiatric profile.

- We did not agree with their decision, but we stopped, of course, to make the procedure – despite the fact that we have never gotten a complaint that has come to be upheld.

you Will begin to perform the type of operations again from next year, when the two years have passed?

- No, we will certainly not, if the agency's approach to the same as the Gynaecological company. I really like the Danish approach to it, you must also have some physical discomfort, but I think it is very restrictive in 2019, where you actually have equality, that there are some women who absolutely objectively genes by sexual intercourse or cycling, where it is almost impossible to be operated.

You say that you don't have got the guidelines. One could also argue that you yourself were responsible for keeping themselves updated within the same area. Your patients rely on you to perform other operations after the book?

I definitely think so. I believe we are one of the most reputable plastic surgery clinics, so it I feel absolutely, they can.


Jens Bjarnesen have the same view of the case as his colleague.

- the Criticism has not anything with the actual operation to do. It is purely preoperative.

It amazed him, the Agency for Patient safety has been in contact with the two plastic surgeons, before deciding whether to curtail their professional work.

- It is just a message that is to come. It amazes me that they don't have the desire to have a dialogue, where if there was something they were unhappy with, they could just have turned.

--------- SPLIT ELEMENT ---------

Gynaecologist: - There is indeed a industry around it here

President of the Danish society of Obstetrics and Gynecology, gynecologist and chief physician Hanne Brix Westergaard, warns women against getting carried intimkirurgi.

- We know that many women are focused on having small internal kønslæber, but in Gynaecological Company we think it is important with wonderful variation. And the operation is not without risk – you risk that there will be scar tissue, or to cut too much.

do you Have knowledge of someone who has been fejlopereret?

- Yes, we did. It is also, therefore, that if the intervention is to be made, it must be in a hospital. There is indeed a industry around it here, and when a plastic surgeon is doing it, he serves money on it. We do not, so maybe the bar for when they are doing an intervention, lower, she felt.
