The Controversial Sri Lankan Doctor Nimal Gamage who was charged  and was on bail in  the death of a lady doctor who died at his  cosmetic surgery clinic in Colombo -04 after administering an expired injection ,has been  allowed to resume his practice at his Cosmetic Surgery Clinic  from today(04) by the Colombo Additional Magistrate A.M Shahabdeen.

The Colombo Additional Magistrate has instructed the Bamabalapitiya(Colombo-04) yesterday (03) Police to hand over the alleged Cosmetic Surgery Clinic which was sealed after the death of the lady doctor after the Defense Counsel of the accused Dr.Gamage has requested the Court yesterday  to withdraw the restrain order imposed on his client's clinic as he is qualified on performing cosmetic surgery in USA.

Although the  alleged doctor's Defense Counsel has informed the court that Dr.Gamage is  qualified in Cosmetic Surgery in USA ,the Acting Registrar of Sri Lanka Medical Council Dr.H.M.S.S.B Herath has stated in a letter issued on 16th of September that Dr.Gamage was registerd in Sri Lanka Medical Council as a qualified medical practitioner who can practice medicine and surgery but not licensed to practice cosmetic surgery and related practices in Sri Lanka.

However the acting registrar has said that Dr.Gamage can perform cosmetic surgeries if he had experience on the field .Highlighting this point made by the Acting Registrar of the Sri Lanka Medical Council the defense counsel of Dr,Gamage has requested the court to withdraw the restraining order imposed on his client to practice cosmetic surgery here.

The Private Medical Regulatory Commission functioned under the Ministry Of Health has also stated few weeks back that the Cosmetic Surgery Clinic run by the accused Dr.Gamge is not licensed to provide cosmetic surgery .the Commission has also said that the equipment and medicine used at the clinic too not according to the standard .

Sri Lankan Collage of Plastic Surgeons and the Sri Lankan College Of Dermatologists have continuously pointed out that the environment of the said cosmetic surgery clinic is not suitable for performing cosmetic surgeries as there are no facilities like a theater,Intensive Care Unit  an anesthetist and a emergency medical service which are must when performing cosmetic surgeries.
