The “dancing dermatologist” caught on video moving to the beat of a hip-hop song was suspended on Thursday by the Georgia medical board, arguing that her continued practice “poses a threat to the public health, safety and welfare.”
The suspended doctor is Windell Davis-Boutte, a dermatologist and director of Boutte Contour Surgery & Skin in Lilburn, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. She proclaims in her website that she has a “surgeon’s hands” and a “woman’s touch.”

The patient in the video, Latoyah Rideau, the patient who was in one of the videos, is also planning to sue Davis-Boutte for the pain and suffering she endured. She told the local media that Davis-Boutte should have paid more attention to her work and less to dancing.
Rideau said she underwent a surgery performed by Davis-Boutte because she wanted her butt to be a little “rounder and smaller.” But Davis-Boutte apparently botched the procedure because Rideau said her buttocks are now lopsided and her left side is continually itching.
Rideau also says the procedure performed by Davis-Boutte had other harmful effects on her. She said: “I can’t live like this. It affects my relationship, it affects everything. I’m very self-conscious.”
Nine others have sued Boutte. They all claim Davis-Boutte’s practice left them disfigured. One case even accused the dancing doctor of causing brain damage.
One video shows Davis-Boutte dancing to a song called “Cut It”. As the song plays, she can be seen with her fingers rolling Rideau’s skin and moving them to the beat.
Davis-Boutte was also seen slicing the air with her scalpel, only a few inches from the patient’s back. As she goes on with the surgery, Davis-Boutte continues to dance, even moving her scalpel rhythmically. She even pauses at some point to wave the scalpel at the camera.
Davis-Boutte did not only purposely dance while carrying out serious procedures that required precision and utmost focus, but she also consciously recorded her “performances” and bragged them by uploading them in her YouTube channel. She has about 20 YouTube videos. All the said videos have since been taken down when controversies surrounding her dancing moves surfaced.
The Georgia Composite Medical Board received reliable information that a patient had been brought by an ambulance to a hospital on May 31, only a day after a liposuction, breast augmentation and a Brazilian butt-lift operation. The patient suffered from a collapsed lung and from anemia because of acute blood loss.
The patient was still in the hospital as of Wednesday. The medical board said that Davis-Boutte’s treatment “failed to conform to the minimal standards of acceptable and prevailing medical practice.”
Davis-Boutte previously said in an interview that “she has done nothing wrong.” She even argued: “’I’m a surgeon, I’m supposed to be able to multi-task.”
However, she has not commented on her medical suspension.
Susan Witt, a medical malpractice lawyer who is representing Rideau, said that at least 100 people have emerged to forward a complaint against Davis-Boutte. Witt also said that she believes the authorities are acting now because of “public pressure” but feels that “it should not have come to this.”
