Talk about a severance package.
A man is alleging that he went into Princeton Baptist Medical Center for a circumcision and woke up from his procedure to find out that his penis been amputated!
Needless to say, he and his wife have filed a medical malpractice lawsuit, which names the hospital, Urology Centers of Alabama, the Simon-Williamson Clinic, and two doctors as defendants in the case.
Apparently, one doctor performed the surgical procedure that was a snip too far back in June.
According the lawsuit, the guy in question awoke from the surgery with his penis amputated, something he did NOT sign up for!
In addition, the lawsuit alleged that the necessity of amputation was never explained, nor was he ever warned that the circumcision could result in an amputation! Hardly!
It also alleges that defendants were negligible in their failure to seek help from a consulting physician when problems arose in the circumcision procedure.
This whole hack and sash approach to circumcision sounds straight out of Sweeney Todd, or even Game of Thrones!
However graphic the lawsuit is, it does not mention the amount of damages being sought.
