Surgeon: Mottley could not be saved


Share post:

Principal surgeon at Surgical Solutions Inc. Dr Sahle Griffith said nothing more could be done to save Warren Mottley’s life, and if his surgery had been performed at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH), he would not have been in a better position.

Griffith was on the witness stand for a fourth day as a Coroner’s Inquest into Mottley’s death continued yesterday in the No. 10 Supreme Court.

Mottley, brother of Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley, died at the QEH on June 29, 2021, after undergoing a colonoscopy on June 22, 2021.

“In his case, knowing what I know now, he would have had significant problems had we done his surgery at the QEH, as we moved him to the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) at the QEH immediately post-op. Had we left him alone, he would have had ischaemia of the small bowel. His bowel was dying. I did not know at the time, but what I know now is that he had ischaemic bowel.” (RA)
