https://arstechnica.com/health/2023/07/ohio-bans-doctor-after-botched-surgeries-on-tiktok-threaten-patients-lives/

Yesterday, an Ohio plastic surgeon, Katharine Grawe—who accumulated nearly 15 million likes by livestreaming operations on TikTok as "Doctor Roxy"—was permanently banned from practicing medicine and surgery in Ohio.

The decision came following a November 2022 suspension temporarily barring Grawe from seeing patients after the State Medical Board of Ohio reviewed "clear and convincing evidence" from multiple patients who were harmed during Grawe's livestreamed surgeries. The board decided to suspend Grawe's license, saying that her "continued practice presents a danger of immediate and serious harm to the public."

    I wonder how the numbers work. Was she covered with malpractice insurance? Hard to believe she could get it. How much TikTok revenue was involved? How much does a butt lift cost? Did the complainants file suit and if so what was the settlement?

      following a surgery involving a Brazilian butt lift

      A Brazilian butt lift. I guess they shave it first?

          Interesting.

          Your link refers a fork lift.

          So close to the exact cause of the problem.

          Wrong kind of fork though

          The true root cause of this problem involves removal of not only the fork lift, but also the spoon lift, hand lift, and other lifts that transport food calories up to the mouth.

            When you need a forklift to haul dat ass, I don't think you need rump implants anymore.

              It gets interesting when they collapse toilets from sheer overburden pressure.

        Ah, so you have to have a Brazilian butt first?

    Was she covered with malpractice insurance?

    The malpractice insurance may have had an exclusion clause that does not cover surgery performed on TikTok.

    She should have used a different social media platform.
