For Dr. Rao’s defense

August 15, 2013

More doctors are giving testimony in defense of Oconee surgeon Frank Rao. An ear, nose, and throat specialist from the Medical University Hospital in Charleston testified today that Dr. Rao rendered the appropriate care to thyroid cancer patient Cassie Sweenor. The patient, 26 years old at the time, developed post-surgery difficulties and was supposed to be air-lifted to MUSC, but the helicopter flight was diverted to Columbia. There, Sweenor was hospitalized three weeks before dying in a hospice home.
