Cancer expert Dr. Henry Woo received insulting phone calls, hateful mail and a barrage of tweets
The cancer doctor who criticized Dr. Charlie Teo has been driven out of social media and claims that he has been subjected to a troll-spoiled attack.
Professor Henry Woo did not expect a wave of abuse when he criticized the high fees of the brain surgeon and the desperate crowdfunding efforts of families to pay for it.
& # 39; I never expected towing to be of this size, & # 39; tweette dr. Woo today. & # 39; Not only social media, but also hate mail and even (insulting) phone calls. & # 39;
Dr. Woo turned to the former Australian of the year after a Daily Mail Australia story was published about a 12-year-old girl whose family raised $ 150,000 for her operation.
There is something serious going on when a terminally ill girl with a brain tumor has to raise $ 120,000 for an operation that Dr. Charlie Teo has offered for $ 60-80K, & # 39; said Dr. Woo.
& # 39; If it was a valid operation, it could / should be performed in the public system under Medicare. & # 39;

Driven by Twitter: Prostate cancer expert Professor Henry Woo announced that he was taking a break from social media
The incidence was so rough that the prostate cancer expert and highly experienced robotic surgery expert announced that he was taking a break from the platform.
Dr. Teo himself seemed to be making a move to the Lifehouse doctor at The Today's Show of The Nine Network, and told him to go back to his lab & # 39; and find a cure.
During that interview, Dr. Teo said he had operations for & # 39; free & # 39; would perform in the public system if doctors supported him.
He claimed that private hospitals received most of the cuts in his bills, arguing that he had only recently paid $ 8,000 for an operation of $ 120,000.
The neurosurgeon has always been an outsider in the medical establishment and has worked in the United States for many years.
He is willing to perform high-risk operations where other doctors have decided that the risks are not offset by the benefits.
Georgie Gardner interviewed Dr. Teo talked about the high cost of his bills yesterday and he said she should get & # 39; your facts right & # 39;
The furore started after Dr. Woo had made a remark about the treatment of Amelia & # 39; Millie & # 39; Lucas – which, including foreign treatment, costs $ 150,000
Asked about Dr. Woo, the Australian Medical Association ethics president and the medical-legal committee Dr. Chris Moy said: “It is terrible that a doctor should be tasted”.
& # 39; I find it very sad that social media is used to having a debate about things like this. & # 39;
Generally speaking, Dr. Moy said: & # 39; Doctors must respect each other.
& # 39; That said, behavior of interest should always be evoked, and ideally the profession and supervisors should be able to do so if they feel there is a problem.
Daily Mail Australia called and mailed Dr Woo for comment on Thursday.
