Celeb Sports Doc Under Investigation

Anthony Galea, the Canadian doctor whose controversial "blood spinning" therapy has attracted a number of patients in the sports world, is under investigation in both the U.S. and Canada, and will likely be charged in Canada on Friday for drugs and customs violations, according to Canadian officials. Galea was reportedly in possession of human-growth hormone and other illegal drugs. Galea has treated Tiger Woods and others with platelet-rich plasma injection, or "blood spinning," in which a doctor spins blood in a centrifuge and reinjects it into a patient, theoretically to accelerate healing; the procedure is legal under current doping guidelines provided that the blood isn't injected directly into the muscle. "Unequivocally, Dr. Galea denies any wrongdoing," his lawyer said.
