Surgeon deregistered for sex with patient

A leading Sydney plastic surgeon has been deregistered for two years for having oral sex with a patient.

Dr Martyn Mendelsohn admitted having oral sex with the 22-year-old patient who he said idolised him after he appeared on a reality TV show.

The Medical Tribunal has found the 50-year-old also failed to properly assess and monitor the woman's health.

The tribunal found he engaged in professional misconduct and ordered he could not apply to work as a doctor again until December, 2010.
