Dr Charlie Teo hosted an event for his patients and supporters, just months after his surgical career was virtually destroyed by health authorities in Australia.

The embattled neurosurgeon, 65, was all smiles as he enjoyed a drink with guests at the Bright Night fundraiser at the Doltone House in Sydney on Thursday,

Guests paid $200 to attend the event while some were charged $500 to enjoy a one hour private pre-event function with Dr Teo.

Dr Teo wore a printed buttoned shirt and beige suit jacket as he chatted to attendees at the cocktail party.

The high-profile surgeon completed his look with beige pants and a black belt.

The event comes months after Dr Teo was found guilty of unsatisfactory professional conduct by the Medical Professional Standards Committee in July. 

The decision came in the wake of findings from the Health Care Complaints Commission (HCCC) that Dr Teo failed to properly inform two of his patients of the risks involved with 'experimental' operations that they failed to recover from.

The restrictions imposed by the HCCC has forced Dr Teo to admit his career is virtually over in Australia and to turn his attention to operating on patients overseas, providing advice to other neurosurgeons, and lecturing. 

Dr Teo has previously indicated he will look to China to perform surgery because they had 'committed' to him, and would also continue to perform occasional operations in Europe and parts of Southeast Asia.
