A 59 year old woman died, after contracting a severe infection (Streptococcus), during a lipo procedure at an office-based Cosmetic Surgery chop shop in Baltimore! Two other patients have also reported an infection. Health officials visited the Monarch Med Spa or rather “Baltimore Laser Solutions, Inc.” d/b/a Monarch Med Spa, found breaches in “standard inspection control practices,” an ordered it shutdown. Cosmetic surgery centers in Maryland, are not currently subject to state licensure,(unregulated) and neither are the cosmetic chop-shops in Tennessee! The infections were reported on 17th and the health department shut it down three-days later, I congratulate their quick response.
Symptoms of this form of strep should see their doctor and call the County/State Health Department. The symptoms include fever, as well as redness, pain or drainage the sight of the procedure. Please recall Pancake did the very same thing at his chop shop but fortunately no Patients died.
Interestingly the web page addressing, Monarch Med Spa so-called “board certified doctor(s)” has been removed! They claim 40,000 procedures so they must have an army of doctors, right? One can’t easy find this information now, after this patients death…however, it does appear that Dr. Daniel Francis, a DO? and Dr. Francis X. Delone Jr a PS?- have been associated with this operation at some point in time (see below). While these two men appear to be the owners: Mr. Kevin Campbell, Mr. Abraham Fadley and Jodyee Hagerman Manager at Monarch medspa. There also appears to be links to Businesses in Franklin, TN too.

It took two-minutes to find the postings below:

“Poorly written regulations is all that allows this place to run. Remember, it's not a doctor's office...it's a "Med Spa". I'm badly scarred for life from this place.” 4/25/2012

“I don't recommend monarch med spa to anyone in fact I think they should be Sued”. 6/15/2011

“Go see a certified & licensed plastic surgeon. I've learned exactly how poor of a practice this "medspa" actually is after seeing an actual doctor” 3/10/2008

This procedure, at this establishment at least, after being proclaimed safe and without consequence, proved this was so not true. The procedure hurt to hell and I was sick up until the follow up......... Unbelievably horrifying...
