Georgia’s ‘Dancing Doctor’ Faces Additional Lawsuits for Online Videos


January 16, 2019

DOUGLAS COUNTY, GA. – According to an online news report from wsbtv.com, a woman dubbed the “Dancing Doctor” of Georgia is facing 10 additional lawsuits related to videos she posted online. The videos depict her singing and dancing while performing medical procedures on patients under anesthesia.* 

Dermatologist Windell Boutte was first exposed in the summer of 2018, when purported promotional videos surfaced that showed her rapping and dancing during actual surgical procedures on real patients. Boutte was practicing in the Atlanta, Georgia, area at the time and sang about her patients to the tune of popular music while the patients were lying on the table under anesthesia with exposed buttocks. She posted the videos to YouTube, but they have since been removed. 

After word of the videos spread, numerous patients filed malpractice lawsuits against Boutte, alleging she was negligent during surgeries and caused them serious injuries. Amid backlash, Boutte agreed to surrender her medical license for almost three years. 

Reports now indicate that Boutte is the subject of 10 additional lawsuits, and that an anesthesiologist featured in one of the online videos has become a named defendant in some lawsuits, as well. Dr. Roland Pinkney can be seen in a video of Boutte’s called “Cut It,” in which he is ungloved and pointing to an incision area on a real patient. Pinkney points to a patient’s exposed side, singing, “You need to cut it,” after which Boutte makes an actual incision on camera. 

“That was the first video I’ve ever been in, because prior to that, I always sat down and said I didn’t want to partake in the videos,” Pinkney said. “It was not supposed to be surgery being performed.”
