Reader Laura on UAE Plastic Surgery Story

Posted May 03 2010 12:00am

Reader Laura’s Comment:

A French doctor was sentenced to one year in prison after performing a breast enlargement procedure on a 24-year-old Belarusian woman, who died after her liver and kidneys failed. Dubai Misdemeanors Court discovered that her blood became contaminated with bacteria and she was given a “wrong injection”. The doctor was charged with practicing medicine without a license. ”

It looks like the US isn’t the only place that is having problems with fake Drs hurting people.

7 Days

Malpractice is hard to prove even in the United States. This doctor was apparently practicing medicine without a license. The story does not tell us whether he was a doctor at all or whether his lack of knowledge was involved in her death. It seems people everywhere need further education regarding screening their surgeons before surgery.

Best Regards,

John Di Saia MD
