Other Info

In 2001, Dr. Melissa Gilliam performed a fatally botched surgery on patient Regina Romero at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Chicago.  Gilliam practiced as an ob-gyn doctor at the hospital, although she was not ob-gyn certified. Gilliam was supposed to remove a small portion of the cervix for patient Regina Romero. Instead, Gilliam cut out a large section of the uterus and cervix, causing lacerations, infection, and severe bleeding. Patient Regina Romero suffered a hemorrhage, lacerations, infections, and sepsis. Despite multiple surgical attempts to save her life, she died from complications to the fatally botched surgery, leaving her two children motherless.  See documents below.
