Irving doctor barred from performing surgery indefinitely

The Texas Medical Board has barred an Irving doctor from performing any cosmetic, reconstructive, or plastic procedures after he performed a nine-hour liposuction on a patient who later suffered serious complications.

According to officials, the physician’s knowledge of the liposuction procedure relied entirely upon reading a book provided with the liposuction machine, completing an online course, and performing one procedure under the supervision of another surgeon.

The restriction has been in place since mid April and will be in effect indefinitely until another order by the board is issued. In a disciplinary hearing, the board discovered the doctor performed the surgery on a patient he previously deemed unsuitable for the procedure.
