Kenneth Bradley was facing third discipline hearing
...
It took nearly two decades, three disciplinary hearings and the negligent deaths of at least seven patients before the province's medical watchdog finally stripped Kenneth Bradley of his licence to practice yesterday - for good.
Bradley, chief surgeon at Milton District Hospital from 1977 to 1988, left more than a dozen patients injured, maimed or dead after botched surgeries, misdiagnoses and negligence over the past 20 years.
Yet it was only yesterday - his third appearance before the disciplinary committee of the province's College of Physicians and Surgeons - that he was finally forced to surrender his licence.
Dressed in a baby blue suit and pink tie, Bradley pleaded "no contest" to charges of professional misconduct and failing to maintain "the standard of practice of the profession," related to the death of a 64-year-old female patient in 1993.
The college's disciplinary committee found him guilty after only a few moments of deliberation.
Bradley received a behind-closed-doors reprimand from the college committee and signed a written undertaking - which was not released to the public - stating he would never apply for licence reinstatement in Ontario.
Normally, doctors who are stripped of their licence to practice medicine can apply for reinstatement after a year.
...
Following the hearing, Bradley, who is retired and spending most of the year living on a yacht in the Caribbean, said he now feels "closure."
"It happened back in 1993, you know.You've got to move on with your life."
The death followed a May, 1993, bowel operation in Georgetown Memorial and District Hospital.The condition of his patient, whose name is protected by a publication ban, quickly deteriorated.
...
This was the third disciplinary case involving Bradley to be heard by the college in Ontario.He was found guilty of failing to maintain the standard of practice in a 1987 case involving the death of a patient following a lung lesion operation that featured an "indefensible procedure," and again in 1995 following the death of a colon cancer patient.
That second disciplinary hearing was triggered by an operation he performed in the same hospital just a month before the death of the 64-year-old woman in 1993.
...
"The hospital knew there was trouble (with Bradley) at the time," recalls Sue McGowan, Carlo's daughter.
...
Bradley never met those restrictions.
He fled Ontario before his second disciplinary hearing was held and obtained a licence in Virginia to continue practicing there as a surgeon.
The Star reported last year that the college did not provide Virginia medical officials with any information about Bradley's disciplinary history, despite being aware he was moving to the state.
Bradley's pattern of ineptitude, unknown to Virginia licensing officials, continued.By June, 1996, four of his Virginia patients had died as a result of substandard care and another two had been medically mistreated, according to a Virginia medical board committee report.
Among the list of bizarre cases was a 71-year-old patient who received a gallbladder operation from Bradley in 1996.Records show the surgeon was "unable to identify the gallbladder" during the operation.It turns out, there was no gallbladder.It had been removed 26 years earlier.
Facing threat of another disciplinary hearing in Virginia in 2000, he agreed to surrender his licence there.

Milton surgeon Dr. Kenneth Bradley was found guilty of medical negligence twice - in 1987 and again in 1995 - in cases where patients were injured or died.Bradley kept his licence and later moved to Virginia, where he was implicated in four deaths.His Ontario licence was finally pulled in 2002.
