Home Based Surgery

A couple are charged after a woman they were doing liposuction on, in their basement, died. Neither of them are physicians.

"Honey! Turn down the washing machine, I can't concentrate!"

The district attorney's office said authorities believe that Ribeiro and his wife administered illegally obtained drugs and performed the surgical procedure on the woman. Neither Ribeiro nor his wife are licensed to practice medicine in Massachusetts.

Police charged Ribeiro with unauthorized practice of medicine, drug possession and distribution, and illegal possession of a hypodermic needle. His wife was charged with unauthorized practice of medicine and drug distribution.

I'm not sure who was more ignorant here - the couple who performed the "surgery," or the (God rest her) "patient" who allowed the procedure to begin with!

Absolutely amazing.
