Plastic surgeon jailed and his clinic shuttered in Dominican Republic
DominicanToday.com - Johan Tapia Bueno, accused of medical malpractice, was incarcerated yesterday in the jail of the Ciudad Nueva Courthouse, after National District prosecutor Alejandro Moscoso interrogated him for more than one hour.
It’s the first time in recent history where a plastic surgeon is jailed and his clinic shuttered.
Bienvenida Hernandez, Sandra Betances, Miguelina Escobar and Rosario Garcia had filed charges against the doctor in the Office of the Prosecutor, alleging collateral damages from cosmetic surgeries he conducted.
The Dominican Plastic Surgeons Association said Tapia isn’t registered in that organization.
Yesterday the Public Health Ministry closed the clinic Brazil, where plastic and aesthetic surgeries were conducted without adherence to sanitary norms and without the corresponding certification.
