Klein

Did Surgery on Jackson

in Gyno Office

7/24/2009 2:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0717_klein_mj_73444380_exd_1-1We've learned Dr. Arnold Klein once took Michael Jackson to the office next door to his -- run by a gynecologist specializing in vaginal rejuvenation -- to perform a minor acne treatment on the singer under full anesthesia.

We spoke with Dr. Harvey Richmond who told us ... around 2003, Dr. Klein asked him if he could use Richmond's surgery center in his office to perform a procedure on Jackson.

Dr. Richmond says, per Klein's request, he got an anesthesiologist and a scrub tech who worked on Jackson.

Dr. Richmond says he found it "odd" that Dr. Klein performed "some sort of acne treatment" with full anesthesia. Dr. Richmond says he believes the anesthesia used was Propofol, the same drug that may have killed Jackson.

Dr. Richmond says the 2003 procedure was the only time Dr. Klein used his office for Jackson.

And there's this -- Dr. Richmond says Jackson stiffed him on the bill, eventually only paying half after Richmond threatened to take the singer to Beverly Hills small claims court.

Give me a break. FULL ON anesthesia for some minor acne work?? LMAO. PULL the license! Of course MJ probably demanded it, but still, here's a perfect example of lack of medical ETHICS. Have heard more than one claim that MJ didn't pay up on occasion. That could have been his business people's decision, btw.

Klein is slime. This sickens me. He knew MJ wanted to sleep and probably suggested procedures he didn't need and he would get paid big time.

I have a theory. It was Kein who thought up the idea of doping-to-sleep and charges Michael a lot of $ just for a few sessions. Michael later decided to hire Murray as his 24/7 private doc to do this sh*t to him whenever he wanted, for $150,000 a month. It was a hair brain idea and trajedy was the result.

Mj was a freak, his family are the ones who should have done something, they are the biggest leeches! Oh, and MJ knew what he was doing he knew exactly what he wanted and how to get it, he is not innocent in this at all.

DR. KLIEN HAS BEEN A DOCTOR TO MJ FOR OVER 20 YRS....NO DOUBT IN MY MIND AT ALL, HE KNEW AND WAS ADMINISTRATING THIS DRUG TO MICHAEL....DEBBIE ROWE KNEW AS WELL, SHE WAS DR. KLIENS NURSE FOR THE ENTIRE SPAN

I hope they nail these slime ball physicians butts to the wall. Yes, Michael was responsible for his own actions, but he was not solely responsible and could not have done this without the enabling practices of these slime ball physicians (I'm including names even yet to be disclosed). I hope they permanently lose their medical licenses even "after" they do time.

As I've heard it said...this is legalized drug pushing. I hope we all learn life lessons from Michael's death...to never ever turn the controls of our lives over to anyone....ever.

I don't think it was acne treatment. Klein said on Larry King that he had used restilyn (sp) or something like that to reconstruct his nose because of the lack of cartilage left from the multiple surgeries.

Klein's man-lover put out some interesting information on this creepy doctor. No wonder so many of those insecure so-called beautiful broads who he did plastic surgery procedures on now look like the butt-hole of Debbie Rowe's horses.
