LMA—A Boston Children’s Hospital doctor was arrested and charged with child pornography possession last month.

Dr. Richard Keller, 56, of Andover is accused by federal prosecutors of purchasing more than 50 DVDs of child porn online.

In a press statement, Children’s said that Keller was placed on “administrative leave” on the day of his Sept. 13 arrest. The statement said that it had not heard any complaints about Keller’s behavior at the hospital.

“We will cooperate fully with the U.S. Attorney’s Office and all other involved regulatory and legal authorities,” the Children’s statement said. “No complaints or concerns have been expressed by any patients or family members about the care Dr. Keller provided while he was at Children’s.”

Keller joined Children’s last year as a pediatric endocrinologist, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office press release. He previous served as the medical director at Phillips Academy, a private boarding school in Andover.
