1/22/2022 Discredited Former University of Wisconsin Doctor Barbara Knox: The expose continues with this story by Reporters Brenda Wintrode and Michelle Theriault Boots: "''We were robbed': Alaska couple loses custody of kids after erroneous abuse diagnosis from former UW (University of Wisconsin) doctor"..."Experts say former University of Wisconsin Dr. Barbara Knox ignored birth injuries in diagnosing Fairbanks baby as suffering from child abuse."...For most of the first year of their daughter's life, Acker and her husband, Justin, stood accused of causing injuries that led to a devastating stroke when Izabel was a newborn. The couple has always denied the accusation. They say Izabel's injuries were caused by a traumatic birth that ended in a rough emergency cesarean section — an assessment shared by two experts who reviewed Izabel's medical records. And a forensic psychologist who examined Emily Acker found she posed no danger to her children. In January of 2021, Alaska child welfare authorities took custody of both the children after Dr. Barbara Knox, a pediatric child abuse doctor affiliated with Providence Alaska Medical Center, diagnosed Izabel with abusive head trauma. Knox formerly worked at American Family Children's Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin. For months, Justin and Emily Acker — a U.S. Air Force staff sergeant and an Alaska Air National Guard staff sergeant — visited their kids at the foster home across the street as they battled in court to clear their names and keep their children. In late October, the Ackers fully regained custody of Izabel and 2-year-old Ezekiel. But the process of getting the children back took crucial months that cannot be replaced. “I feel like we were robbed,” said Emily Acker. “Of a lot.” Izabel's case is the latest in over a dozen cases uncovered by Wisconsin Watch and the Anchorage Daily News in which Knox's assessments of child abuse were later rejected by medical specialists, child welfare authorities, law enforcement or the courts. Reporters verified the Ackers’ account by reviewing Izabel's and Emily's medical records, Knox's reports and child welfare documents and by interviewing the medical experts and examining their reports." blogspot.com ... later, the mark cleared, which Gabaeff noted is “inconsistent with physical trauma.” But Knox’s medical opinion carried immediate weight with Alaska authorities — just as it had in other cases examined by Wisconsin Watch. The Ackers became entangled in two child abuse investigations, one by the Air Force and one with the state of Alaska."STORY: 'We were robbed': Alaska couple loses custody of kids after erroneous abuse ...
