JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.  – The Missouri medical board has revoked the license of a pediatric surgeon more than two years after he was arrested in New Mexico on child pornography charges.

The Kansas City Star reports that Guy Rosenschein is behind bar while awaiting trial. Federal agents arrested him in November 2016 after serving a search warrant. Besides finding child porn, they discovered a 16-year-old former patient, wearing only his underwear, in Rosenschein’s bed. Both said nothing sexual occurred between them.

He’s facing at least 16 lawsuits from the families of former patients. None so far are from Missouri, where he had been licensed since 2000. He worked in Joplin and at the University of Missouri Health Care in Columbia until 2013.

Rosenschein’s attorneys didn’t return a message from The Star seeking comment.
