Hyderabad: A 30-member group of the Telangana Medical Council and Indian Medical Association, led by chairman Dr Mahesh Kumar and vice-chairman Dr G Srinivas, identified 122 fake doctors in Khammam on Saturday. They said there were at least 250 fake doctors in the district. The team will inspect medical centres in the district for four more days

Inspections were carried out across Khammam Urban and Rural at Kusumanchi, M. Venkatayapalem, Nelakondapalli, Konijarla, Mudigonda, Vaira, Tallada, Enukuru, Jullur Padu, Kallur, Kothagudem, Sujatha Nagar, B.M. Banjera, Raghunadhapalem, Karepalli, Mulkalapalli, Tekulapalli, Kamepalli, Illandu, Mucharla, and Thimmarao Peta.

The 122 fake doctors were identified in the Tirumalayapalem and Pindiprolu areas. Claiming to be RMPs and PMPs, they administered antibiotics, steroid injections and painkillers. Dr Srinivas said legal actions would be taken against them.

Ethical committee chairman Dr Kiran Kumar said that illegal operations, including clandestine abortion procedures and excessive steroid injections for knee pain, were being conducted under the guise of first aid centres. A surveillance system has been established to monitor these activities.

Public relations committee chairman Dr Naresh Kumar stated that no one should practice medicine without a medical degree. Those with paramedical training should only provide basic treatment and refer patients to government hospitals.
