What could be worse than going in for a circumcision and waking up to find your entire penis amputated.
That’s exactly what an Alabama man said happened to him, filing a lawsuit on Tuesday against two doctors at an Alabama hospital for removing his manhood without prior warning.
According to AL.com:
The man and his wife filed the lawsuit Tuesday in Jefferson County Circuit Court in Birmingham. He names the hospital, Urology Centers of Alabama, the Simon-Williamson Clinic and two doctors as defendants in the case.
The lawsuit says the patient was receiving medical treatment from a doctor at Urology Centers of Alabama. Another doctor performed the surgical procedure in June. The lawsuit does not give an exact date.
“When the plaintiff … awoke from his aforesaid surgical procedure, his penis was amputated,” according to the lawsuit. The plaintiffs “never gave consent for the complete or partial amputation of (his) penis.”
