Another immigrant playing doctor here in the U.S.
Last week, authorities arrested Diaz Hernandez on federal felony charges alleging receipt of an adulterated and misbranded medical device, smuggling of merchandise and misbranding of prescription drugs, according to the U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles.
Federal authorities said Diaz Hernandez is not licensed to perform medical treatments or cosmetic procedures in California. The woman began feeling cramps, itchiness, and stinging in her buttocks. Her fingers also became swollen and she developed lumps in her buttocks.
She went to see Dr. Carlos Alberto Rios Garcia after learning he had removed a similar substance from others. The doctor removed the substance as well as portions of her buttocks, according to the affidavit. He had to use skin grafts to rebuild the skin on her buttocks.
