Until 2016, one could only find good things in the press about Dr. Paolo Macchiarini. According to一份报告，MacChiarini是在塑料气道替代品创造塑料气道替代品的先驱，在再生医学中是一个开创性的发明。他为像瑞典卡罗西斯卡研究所这样的大学工作，是特色in magazines and documentaries for his work. But in 2016, as he remained in the spotlight, he wasout作为他的那个据称的骗子，他的奔塔·亚历山大。她现在在Tiktok分享她的故事。
She said he made promises of a wedding with an amazing venue, attended by his famous friends, and officiated by the pope. She alleged that not only did he fail to fulfill those promises but that he reportedly conned her out of nearly $50,000.
亚历山大saysin one TikTok that she first met him around the time he was doing surgery on a young Korean girl, Hannah, who “never left the hospital” as she was born without a windpipe. Alexander says at the same time, her ex-husband was dying of brain cancer. She says Macchiarini comforted and advised Alexander on how to cope, and a friendship developed. As their relationship grew, Alexander says she felt they “fell in love” in a way that “felt like a fairy tale” over two years.
“The only thing, and it was something that we argued about a lot toward the end of our relationship, was that he had never taken me and my daughter to his house in Barcelona,” she continued. “That’s one of the tips I always give women now: When you’re dating someone, you have to see where the person lives. If they will not let you see where they live, typically, something’s wrong.”
亚历山大said she did her research发现，当时，教皇在梵蒂冈和梵蒂冈地区嫁给了“生活在罪恶”的夫妇，而且马太基尼似乎有他声称的朋友。她说她在告诉她后买了一件婚纱，因为他想要在他的婚礼当天感到惊讶。她说他从未回避过她花在衣服上的50,000美元。
“One of the reasons I am so adamant about continuing to talk about this is because I think victim-shaming is terrible. It’s so damaging. It defeats the point,” she said. “We have somebody who has been brave enough to share something that’s already humiliating and devastating. If your response is to point a finger at a victim, that’s really sad. It does so much unnecessary damage. We need to be pointing the finger at the con man.”
She said on the day they were supposed to get married, Macchiarini told her he was in Russia. Alexander said she knew he wasn’t in Russia and decided to fly to Barcelona herself to “surprise” Macchiarini in a quest for answers in July 2015. She said she was headed to the address he had previously given her for a home in Barcelona. But upon searching, Alexander said she came to the conclusion that the address he had given her was a fake and found the real home. She said she donned a disguise, rallied her friends, and hid in the car as they knocked on the door.
While Alexander said she wanted to confront him, she elected not to for the sake of the children. She said she instead told him she knew everything in a lengthy text, to which he replied: “wow.” In concern for the safety and wellbeing of his patients, Alexander said she went public with her information on Macchiarini in 2016.
Soon after, a Swedish documentary that Alexander describes as “scathing,” covered all of Macchiarini’s alleged medical misconduct. According toAgence France-Presse，据据报道，八名患者中有七个患者在最终死亡的“突破性”手术。据报道，唯一的幸存者已经逆转了该程序。
