Yikes!

via Al.com:

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.”

Efforts Tuesday evening to reach the man’s attorney, John P. Graves, were unsuccessful.

Kate DeWitt Darden, vice president of marketing and communications at Baptist Health System, said they do not comment on who might or might not have been a patient and generally do not comment on pending litigation.

Officials with Urology Centers of Alabama had not immediately responded to a request for comment prior to publication of this story.

The lawsuit claims that the man was never provided with an explanation as to the medical necessity of an amputation nor was never warned the circumcision procedure could result in an amputation.
