Lipo doctor accused in patient’s death gets 30-day suspension

A Bellevue surgeon accused in the death of a liposuction patient has been suspended for 30 days, the state Department of Health said Thursday.

The Medical Quality Assuarance Commission had charged Marco Sobrino with unprofessional conduct last year, after his patient died following liposuction of her abdomen and upper arms.

Authorities had accused Sobrino of failing to monitor how much anesthetic he gave the woman, and of sending her home alone in a cab without checking on her condition.

The patient, 28-year-old Aura Javellana, died in a hotel room in May of 2009, the day after her procedure. An autopsy showed she died of acute poisoning from Lidocaine, an anesthetic that was injected into her body.
