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.

I have my kids sedated all the time for major dental procedures...read the story again people...Michael said he didnt want to hear about permits...Blanket was to receive whatever sedation that was required. Nothing wrong with this, now if MJ had dental work, and pressed for Propofol and the Dr. wasnt allowed to issue it, again, the Dr. should have stood firm and sent him to someone else. It is sad that MJ had a problem sleeping and felt that was the only thing out there to help him, but the Dr.s had a responsibility to say NO.

Sometimes they have to sedate you for "Deep Cleaning". Its like a form of surgery IF they have to cut into your gums. It aint nothing fun.

One part of this story intrigues me.
Why didn't this dentist have the permit to use anaesthesia on his premises? I expect that it is a regular and essential part of any dental practice.
Is it unusual in the US for a dentist to sedate people whilst undergoing painful treatment?
If so, then why didn't this particular dentist have a permit?

This story is obviously false. There is no evidence of it being true since "in the final version of the report Blanket was taken completely out". But the similarities to Evan & Jordie Chandler case are intentional.

Check it out here: http://dearjordanchandler.com/?p=21

It's time to start realizing that things aren't always as the seem. dig deeper and you just might notice that there are too many inconsistencies, too many "coincidences", too many contradictions. Something else is going on and the evidence is mounting up...Michael Jackson hoaxed his death.

Michael Jackson is ALIVE!

How is this Michael forcing the drug on his child? I underwent dental operations numerous times as a child while under anaesthetic and other wise it would've been actual torture. This is just normal - whats wrong about this story is that anaesthetic was done by someone who shouldn't have done it. This is pathetic - clearly not Michael's fault. Poor Michael, why is everything twisted against him???
