The doctor who performed surgery on Kanye West?s mother the day before she died has given up his medical licence.
Dr Jan Adams operated on Donda West on November 9, 2007, performing multiple procedures including a tummy tuck and breast reduction. She died the next day.
Donda’s autopsy concluded there was no evidence that the surgery was botched. The report stated that the 58-year-old died of heart failure, and added: “Multiple post-operative factors could have played a role.”
Although Adams has always denied any wrongdoing, the Medical Board of California sought to revoke or suspend his license because of multiple alcohol-related convictions.
“A series of complaints were filed against Mr Adams, but he chose to surrender his license instead of contest them,” Medical Board spokeswoman Candis Cohen said.
