MJ Pushed Dr. To Improperly Give Son Anesthesia

1/13/2011 1:06 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Michael Jackson subjected one of his children to the same risky medical treatment that eventually killed him.

Sources tell TMZ ... Michael cajoled a Las Vegas dentist into performing a procedure on Blanket in July, 2008, that involved putting the boy under anesthesia for 2 hours in a dental office that did not have the necessary permit for anesthesia.

TMZ has obtained internal documents from the Nevada Board of Dental Examiners, which detail Michael Jackson's interactions with Dr. Mark Tadrissi.   According to the documents, Tadrissi told Michael he couldn't perform the procedure on Blanket because he lacked the permit.

According to the Board's investigator, Michael didn't want to hear about permits and told the doctor, "Have an anesthesiologist do whatever type of sedation required."

Tadrissi capitulated and performed the 2 hour procedure on Blanket ... who was 6 years old at the time.  An anesthesiologist had Blanket sedated the entire time.

Now here's where it gets mysterious.  The Board -- which learned of Tadrissi's actions after Michael died -- initiated a disciplinary action against Tadrissi  for allowing Blanket to be anesthetized in his office.  The Board also went after Dr. Tadrissi for allowing Michael to receive Propofol in his office, without the proper permit.

Dr. Tadrissi struck a deal with the Board in 2010 in which he was sanctioned.  In a draft of the report, the Board based the sanctions on his treatment of both Blanket and Michael.  But in the final version of the report Blanket was taken completely out -- there is no mention of the boy or his treatment.

One source connected with the investigation tells TMZ ... pressure was put on the Board to omit Blanket from the report, and when the final version was issued, the discipline was based solely on Michael's treatment.

When my son was 6 he must`join` a dentist for ex one little milk tooth i never forget his fear he was crying so loud that another patient leave the waiting area.
It was so hard to watch my son like this and ask the dentist for sed.him!

For an 2 hour sug.i would demand to sedat my son.

I can`t handle the horror to see my son like this again!

LOVE AND MISS MJJ

6. ....MICHAEL is NOT on trial MURRAY is, so even if they can prove Michael did this, what of it? As the Coroner stated, Murray STILL is GUILTY because he had NO BUSINESS administering Propofol for the WRONG reasons, in the WRONG setting, and with the WRONG equipment....

I totally agree.
But I wasn't expecting the discrediting to start so soon after the prelim hearing.

So, lets read between the lines, shall we?
An anesthesiologist (not a dentist) sedates a 6yr-old for a two hour dental proceedure. Turns out the dental office didn't have the necessary paperwork. Big deal!

There are instances where Propofol is totally acceptable, and a long dental procedure on a fidgety (and possibly frightened) child is one of them.

Of course, once TMZ put their spin on it, it becomes a completely different story!

Sensationalize a story and by poor choice of wording you make attempt to place blame upon Michael to get attention. I would suggest you rewrite the story as it is apparent this is about the DENTIST and the Board more so than Michael and Prince II

The report/ the article mentions nothing about propofol period. And regardless, why throw this out here now when it happened 2 - 3 years ago. This is like throwing a bone to a dog. This has nothing to do with murray's case. If anything, it makes TMZ look suspect. Although, they evidently don't care.

mj fan forever    

THIS HAS BEEN BECAUSE THAT TREATMENT REQUIRED THE ANESTHESIA AND MICHAEL DID NOT WANT HIS CHILD FELT PAIN!!!! THIS IS THE MOST NORMAL REACTION IN THE WORLD!!!!!

MICHAEL JACKSON ADORED AND LOVED HIS CHILDREN AND NEVER HE WOULD HAVE DONE SOMETHING THAT WOULD HAVE DAMAGED THEM!!!

HE RAISED THREE WONDERFUL CHILDREN IN PERFECT HEALTH AND HAPPY!!!!! PROPOFOL WAS NOT STORED IN HIS HOME FOR FEAR THAT A CHILD COULD DRINK IT THINKING THAT IT WAS MILK!!!!!

SO FOR THE RECORD MICHAEL JACKSON WAS THE BEST FATHER IN THE WORLD AND ALWAYS WILL BE!!!!!

MURRAY IS A MURDERER WHO COMMITTED A HOMICIDE!!!!

THEN DR. TRADISSI CAN BE SUBJECTED A DISCIPLINARY ACTION AND THE TEXAS MEDICAL BOARD AND THE NEVADA STATE BOARD OF MEDICAL EXAMINERS "DON'T FEEL COMPELLED" TO SUSPEND HIS LICENSE JUST BECAUSE A JUDGE (SORRY IF IT IS NOT ENOUGH!!!!!!) SUSPENDED HIS LICENSE IN ANOTHER STATE????!!!! THIS IS THE ONLY THING SHAMEFUL!!!!! MURRAY IS A COLD BLOODED MURDERER AND THEY SHOULD HAVE HAD TO SUSPEND HIS DAMNED LICENSE IMMEDIATELY IF THEY REALLY HAD HAD AT HEART PEOPLE'S HEALTH!!!!! BUT APPARENTLY THEY HAVE ONLY FOR SOME!!!!! SHAME!!!!!!!

Now look at the title for the post that TMZ came up with.

It reads: MJ Pushed Dr. To Improperly Give Son Anesthesia

The FACT IS, MJ didn't push any doctor to give his son anesthesia IMPROPERLY. He only said do what needs to be done. If you need to get an anesthesiologist, then DO IT. It's not up to Michael Jackson to determine what permits this dentist should have in order to perform this procedure. He entrusts that the dentist, a professional, will have all necessary permits in place or refer him to an oral surgeon and clinic that DOES.

This title is slanted to have us all think MJ has something to do with what anesthesia was administered and how. He did not. The dentist did.

If it wasn't "improper", the dental Board wouldn't have jumped all over it.

It may have been improper on the dentist and his clinic's part but MJ is a client, not a dental expert. He had nothing to do with securing this clinic's permits.

This is a clarification for you "Enough".

You are looking for smoke where there is NO FIRE.
