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.

What is vaginal rejuvenation? Was that gynecologist a doctor or a gigolo?

When you hear the Morphine song- you hear in the background a women saying - you heard what the doctor said- then you hear a voice say - put the tickets and then later in the song you hear a voice say daddy or debbie- it sounds like debbie to be- Go listen - Michael always said if he did not mean it - he would not sing it- Sad!!!!

I wonder if MJ was so addicted to anesthesia that he used his nose for an excuse to keep going under? Is there anyone in history that became addicted to anesthesia?

I think Uri Geller and Arnold Klein were MJ's lovers......They seemed more commited and connected than just friends...It will be revealed that MJ had many gay partners......

Seems this is MJ's m/o, get people to give him things, then refuse to pay them for it. These Jacksons are a real upstanding group of people. Guess, they feel the world owes them. Real low class.

This article is not at all reassuring as far as doctors are concerned...did Michael ask for this type of treatment or did the doctor decide to perform it himself? One may ask himself what kind of doctors were surrounding MJ ? Maybe too wealthy...?
This is such a FREAKY STORY !!!

From the reports it seems that MJ was a junkie freak who looks for sedatives and narcotics. We loved this Man from our heart but in return he makes us pay a heavy blow for our heart.

Doctors bill their billable amount. Fees are sometimes based on U&C, usual and customary, or the rate billed by other doctors for the same procedure in the same demographic area ( the U&C for a simple office exam would be one price in a small town in the mid west and a different price in NYC). but not always, doctors can set their own fees. If you run it through insurance and if the Dr is contracted through that insurance company, the billed amount is different from the eligible or contracted amount and the difference would be the contractual write-off. If the Dr is not contracted, the insurance company still pays the U&P but the patient is responsible for the uncovered amount. MJ most likely was a cash patient, no insurance, and therefor he would be billed the fill U&C, no contractual write off, no insurance adjustment. He should have been responsible for the billed entire amount

good! the feds and LAPD should rewally check this guy! Most his clients become druggies! not just MJ-a roll call of Hollywood. I noticed,each time aother celeb goes to rwhab-- just happens to b e his client.
I know he was able to get MJ under his spell because Mj was so insecure with his vitilago and acne. Then the Pepsi accident happened-- I really have NO doubt-- he's instrumental in making MJ a real addict-- instead of sorting him out to deal with his problems he just prescribed him more painkillers. This before Mj s uffered from real insommia. THIS IS WHY DEBBIE ROWE WAS GIVING MJ HOUSE VISITS-- TO INJECT HIM WITH DEMEROL? and this is the 'friendship' with MJ she talks about? this is why she visited MJ on different film sets and even when he was on tour with Klein!

did any of you watched thT YOUTUBE POSTED AT OTHER THREAD?.. look at Klein..Debie.. these are the parents of Prince & Paris?? are you kidding me?!

can you just imagine those kids growing older looking like these 2? HELL NO! THOSE KIDS DON'T REMOTELY LOOK LIKE EITHER ONE OF THEM WHEN THEY WERE YOUNGER NOW.. Klein is also the one who had his ex-boyfriend to come out with that bull Mj was beaten up so much by Joe-- it affected his scrotum and became sterile.. can you imagine how crude? malicious?

Klein was lying on Larry King about his infleunce on MJ and his treatments.

yes all his songs were stories most of the time about him in someway or another and what he wanted for the world.. they told his life story and that is how he shared his pain with his fans i believe!!!i miss him and want him to rest in peace he sure deserves that now..

No. I'm Michael Jackson's lover. And his murder has caused me sleepless nights (not that I would use Propofol to sleep). I must
avenge Michael's murder. And the best way I know how to help is to report on this case ceaselessly.

so now debbie wants full custody of those kids??! how about using this info in court?! she's instrumental having Mj on drugs too--before she even carried them?!

if I were Debbie-- I'd shut t he hell up! just be happy to get the balance of the money per her deal with Michael-- and Leave those kids alone!
it was Klein who called her to get those children--as he unwittingly admitted on Larry King.. why? to get MJ's estate?
