Raleigh General Investigates Doctor's Procedures
Raleigh General Hospital is investigating whether heart procedures performed by a doctor were warranted.
Raleigh General CEO David Darden tells The Register-Herald that the investigation was prompted by an ongoing internal review. He says the review identified cases in which a patient's condition might not have warranted the placement of a stent.
Darden says the hospital has enlisted national experts to review cases involving procedures performed by the doctor.
The hospital is providing follow-up care to affected patients.
Darden says the doctor no longer works at the hospital.
Attorney Ben Salango, who represents a patient, identified the doctor as Dr. D. Kenneth Glaser.
A residential telephone listing for Glaser could not be found. A woman who answered the telephone at a business listing said he no longer works there.
