MONTREAL — A doctor has been barred from doing circumcisions after botching 80 of them, the Quebec College of Physicians has ruled.

Several of Dr. Raymond Rezaie's patients were left with urinary problems and had to undergo a second operation.

Rezaie, who practises at a Montreal clinic, temporarily lost his right to perform circumcisions after a "staggering" number of the operations failed, according to a disciplinary board ruling that took effect this week.

The college could eventually decide to impose a permanent ban on Rezaie.
