Did Tiger Woods Need a Plastic Surgeon?

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009


X17 is reporting that Tiger Woods suffered such severe injuries at the hands of his wife that he needed a plastic surgeon to repair him. According to Popeater, Tiger’s wife attacked him with a 9 iron:

“When she struck Tiger, she put a huge gash in the right side of his face next to his nose (causing his nose to bruise some), and virtually knocking two of his upper teeth out, and breaking the bone on the upper right side,” (sports columnist) Bisher writes.

I take ER call for a local hospital and quite often see traumatic injuries, such as people who get bit by dogs, fall off horses, are struck by flying logs, and are in car accidents. Last week I saw a patient with some major injuries from a seizure. BUT I’ve never seen a philandering husband beat in the face with a golf club by his pissed off wife!

Tiger Woods – Crazy Ambien Sex?

Sunday, December 6th, 2009

By now you may have heard that one of Tiger’s alleged mistresses, Rachel Urchitel, claims:

‘You know you have crazier sex on Ambien – you get into that Ambien haze. We have crazy Ambien sex.’”

Crazy Ambien sex? I often prescribe Ambien to help my patients sleep. It would seem more likely that a person on Ambien would pass out during sex instead of get crazy. I think that there are a lot of other medications that would act as better aphrodesiacs.

Any readers ever take Ambien and get a little frisky?

Is it worth it to operate on celebrities?

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008

There is an interesting post from the Scalpel or Sword blog regarding the dangers of operating on celebrities such as Tiger Woods:

When a 32 year old soon-to-be billionaire superstar seeks medical treatment, I doubt he has to get a referral from his PCP or approval from an HMO pencil-pusher. But as the John Ritter case revealed, when a rich celebrity suffers a disastrous medical outcome, the potential liability far exceeds any insurance coverage or assets of the treating physicians.

Sure, the Orthopedist will get to prominently display a signed picture in his office waiting room of Tiger shaking his hand, and he will likely benefit from the prestige of having such a high-profile patient. And I’m sure Tiger will pay his bill in full. But what is a reasonable fee for taking on the enormous liability risk of treating such a patient?

This is even more true when the surgery being performed on the celebrity is plastic surgery. The Donda West case is an excellent example of that. Sure, her surgeon may have gotten some kudos for doing a nice job had things gone well, but since the situation ended poorly, his practice has now been devastated. Obviously other factors are in play in that situation as well. That being said, would I operate on celebrities? Yes.
