Prosecutors questioned the surgeon twice last week over operations carried out on 2011 and 2012, Dagens Nyheter reports.
“The suspicions concern crimes relating to the operations,” prosecutor Anders Tordai told the newspaper.
Previously an internationally renowned surgery star who operated on numerous Swedish and international celebrities, Macchiarini was sacked in March by Sweden's Karolinska Institute (KI) after growing controversy surrounding his medical methods.
