FOREST SURGERY CENTER LIPOSUCTION DEATH, SAN JOSE, 95131

There was a liposuction death at Forest Surgery Center, a Bay Area Surgical Management Surgicenter, in July of this year, 2011. A 21 year old Vietnamese female, undergoing tummy liposuction, died on the operating table, after the surgeon poked a major inter abdominal vein with a liposuction cannula. The cannula impaled the abdominal wall and ripped open the patient's vena cave vein, causing massive loss of blood and death. Being in a surgicenter and not a hospital, this mortal injury could not be treated and the 21 year old died. Instead of going home to recover, she went to the coroner. The 21 year old deceased female was said to be very thin with just a small tummy. There have been similar cases reported across the state. Be sure are check out the surgery center's safety! linda

There is so much wrong with this story. I will not say anything about this but i will say that these people who come up with these stories need to really do their research. Don't believe everything you read!

When a great misfortune such as this occurs it is good to look at all possible causes. Was Forest Surgicanter at fault because of bad equipment?

Did a bad cannula break? Did anesthesia play a roll by allowing the patient to wake up and jump around.

Was Bay Area Surgical Management at fault for hiring unlicensed surgical techs or for not having adequate resuscitation plans and equipment? a

Permits mean nothing if some screwed up. If something happened that should not of happened this is wrongful death.

unfortunately ..no surgery is risk free, she won't be the first or last to die due to a so called routine procedure..that s why they make you sign those papers before the intervention !
