Willmar doctor disciplined for two failed surgeries


WILLMAR — A Willmar doctor was disciplined by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice this month for performing two eyelid surgeries, both on the same patient, that went awry.

Dr. Martin Janning was ordered to complete a pre-approved course in oculoplastic surgery within the next nine months. He also is required to observe a minimum of five entropion surgeries by a pre-approved physician and write a report on what he has learned and how it will be implemented in his practice.
