An Ohio plastic surgeon who livestreamed procedures on TikTok has been banned from practicing medicine.
The Ohio Medical Board on Wednesday voted to permanently revoke the license of Dr. Katharine Grawe — known as Dr. Roxy in her plastic surgery practice, "Roxy Plastic Surgery," and to her many TikTok followers.
Grawe spoke into a camera and answered viewer questions — all while the surgeries were taking place.
"I ask you from the bottom of my heart to please consider my thoughts with an open mind.
The notice also listed three patients of Grawe's who suffered severe complications and needed intense medical care after she operated on them.
One woman's intestine was found to be perforated a week after her surgery, a procedure that Grawe partially livestreamed on TikTok.
While Ohio's state medical board can only affect doctors' rights to practice in the state, disciplinary actions are reported to the National Practitioner Databank and posted online. »
