39-year-old Woman Died After a Vaginal Reconstruction

A Cypress doctor has agreed to accept 35 months probation by the California Medical Board after his patient, 39-year-old lady died after undergoing plastic surgery in an unaccredited outpatient center, the board said Tuesday.

According to board documents, Hansen performed the surgery in March 2008 at Hills Surgical Institute in Anaheim Hills. At the time, board documents say, the center was unaccredited, in violation of state law.The medical board documents say Hansen met the patient for the first time shortly before the surgery and failed to take a thorough medical history or perform a comprehensive exam. During the surgery, the patient began to bleed. Afterward, she underwent liposuction, which was performed by a different doctor.

After the second surgery, documents say, the woman suffered a heart attack and died an hour later at a hospital. The documents allege Hansen was incompetent for failing to verify that the surgery center was accredited or check on his patient at the hospital after he learned of her complications.
