A neurosurgeon has been barred from performing any surgeries at a Veterans Affairs medical center in Mississippi but has continued to collect his salary as a legal battle goes on.
The G.V. (Sonny) Montgomery VA Medical Center in Jackson barred the doctor, Mohamed Eleraky, from seeing patients years ago, but Eleraky continues to collect his $339,177 annual salary, according to the Clarion Ledger.
Eleraky filed an amended court complaint earlier this month against the VA seeking injunctive relief and monetary damages in a jury trial.
