The Missouri medical board revoked the license of pediatric surgeon Guy Rosenschein last week — more than two years after he was arrested in New Mexico on child pornography charges. Rosenschein had been licensed in Missouri since 2000 and worked in Joplin and at the University of Missouri Health Care in Columbia until 2013.
Missouri was the last state where he remained active, although his license had lapsed in 2017 because he failed to renew it.
The Missouri Board of Registration for the Healing Arts had no comment on why the revocation took more than two years, said spokeswoman Lori Croy. With the nation’s patchwork of state medical boards, there’s often a lag time between when doctors lose their licenses in one state and when they lose them in others if they lose them at all.
Adam T. Funk an attorney from of the Potts Law Firm, representing many of the plaintiffs, said none so far are from Missouri, but he believes there may be more people harmed by Rosenschein who have not come forward.
“We are open to discussing (it) with anybody who has been affected by him,” Funk said.
Potts Law Firm’s clients are former pediatric patients of Dr. Guy Rosenschein and Presbyterian Hospital. When they were treated by Dr. Rosenschein, the children ranged in age from 1 to 15 years old. Their lawsuits include claims of negligence, gross negligence, infliction of emotional distress, invasion of privacy, lack of informed consent, assault, and negligent hiring, training, credentialing, retention, supervision, and management.
