    A cosmetic surgeon filmed herself and her staff dancing and rapping while performing surgery on a 54 yr old woman who wanted a flat stomach before getting married. Eight hours into the surgery, the patient's heart stopped. The end result was permanent brain damage that made her a vegetable.

    I also heard on a daytime TV show that she makes all her patients sign some sort of disclaimer/waiver (or whatever it's called) that she is permitted to videotape all her surgeries and post them on YouTube. (Don't know if this is true)

    Her heart stopped during surgery. That’s the risk you take with any surgery. Very unfortunate.

    What I’m concerned with is the office where it was done weren’t equipped to handle the emergency.

    There's more to it than that. Did you see the YouTube video where the doctor and her staff were dancing and rapping during the surgery ?

    Those cosmetic surgery centers are death traps. Joan Rivera died during a botched surgery there. Sad but if you choose your vanity over your safety, you’re playing with Fire.

    Wow no I didn’t see that when I originally commented. Unbelievable. That doctor belongs behind bars.

    Yeah, shocking. I edited my original post to include the video.

    True, but this was also outrageous medical malpractice.

    As a medical professional, I can say there is risk with every procedure, especially when anesthesia is in play. Having surgery, especially major surgery, in a clinic carries it’s additional risks as they don’t have hospital resources to deal with emergencies. My mother is an orthopedic surgeon and does all her surgeries in a hospital. My sister is an oral surgeon and does most surgieries outpatient unless the patient is high risk (most often obese patients in her case).

    I think the first question to ask is if this patient had known underlying risks that should have made her ineligible for the surgery or at least ineligible in a clinic setting. If the answer is “yes” then there might be stronger case for a lawsuit. At the least I think it’s pretty unacceptable the clinic’s elevator could not accommodate a stretcher.

    I don’t think the doctor’s behavior is very professional, but that said it’s not uncommon at all for surgeons to listen to music, even hum or sing along, or have random unrelated conversations while operating. Dancing is a bit much- but the real question is if the surgeon’s behavior or negligence contributed to the cardiac arrest.

    In that case I’m withholding judgement until the facts come out. I’m also curious to know if there was an anesthesiologist on hand or if the surgeon was responsible.

    Lesson to everyone: If you’re undergoing major surgery, or a lesser surgery with anesthesia and are a high risk patient, have the surgery in a hospital!

    Patients really need to be informed of this upfront before agreeing to surgery.
