Padge Windslowe, aka 'the Black Madam,' allegedly performed illegal cosmetic surgery involving silicone butt injections Krazy Glue
(CBS/AP) PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - A judge has ordered a Philadelphia woman dubbed the 'Black Madam' to stand trial for allegedly performing illegal cosmetic surgeries, including buttocks enhancement procedures using silicone from Thailand and Krazy Glue.
Padge Windslowe, 42, is charged with aggravated assault, practicing medicine without a license and theft by deception.
At a preliminary hearing Wednesday, an exotic dancer named Shurkia King testified that she suffered severe respiratory problems and spent two weeks in the hospital after a "pumping party" for which Windslowe charged $1,000 per session and performed injections on a dining table.
A doctor testified that he found silicone particles on King's lungs that could have killed her.
Police also believe Windslowe injected 20-year-old Claudia Aderotimi, who died after a pumping party at a Philadelphia airport hotel last year. Aderotimi complained of chest pain and difficulty breathing following the procedure. No charges have been filed in that case as detectives await extensive autopsy test results.
King, 23, said she learned about the Black Madam through fellow dancers and thought Windslowe was a certified nurse. After the first pumping party went well on New Year's Eve, King said she went back for more in February.
One of the injections seemed to go in wrong and left her leg shaking, but Windslowe told her to just breathe and that everything is OK, King said.
King's oxygen level was "dangerously low" when she arrived at a hospital two days later, a doctor testified. She spent about a week in intensive care and used an oxygen tank to breathe until she returned to work, the doctor and King both testified.
Dr. Arka Banerjee of Lankenau Medical Center testified that the silicone particles attached to King's lungs were diffused and too small to remove surgically. On cross-examination, the doctor acknowledged that medical records show King to be a daily smoker and marijuana user.
Philadelphia police believe Windslowe performed at least 14 cosmetic surgeries, moving locations to avoid detection. She remains in jail on $750,000 bail.
