Circumcision And MORE

Amputation instead of circumcision? Man sues hospital after surgery ? RT USA

An Alabama man says doctors mistakenly removed his penis during what was supposed to be a routine circumcision procedure, and now he has filed suit against the physicians and hospitals involved.

According to the lawsuit filed on Tuesday this week in state court, Johnny Lee Banks Jr. emerged from what should have been a standard circumcision surgery at Princeton Baptist Medical Center last month with more of him missing than he had anticipated.

"When the plaintiff ... awoke from his aforesaid surgical procedure, his penis was amputated," Al.com journalist Kent Faulk quoted from the lawsuit. The plaintiffs "never gave consent for the complete or partial amputation of (his) penis."

"My client is devastated," Banks' attorney, John Graves, told Reuters this week.

The Associated Press reported that, according to the suit, Banks was never told ahead of the procedure that amputation could occur as a result. He and his wife are now suing the Princeton facility, Urology Centers of Alabama, the Simon-Williamson Clinic and two doctors in a suit that accuses them of medical malpractice, negligence and other wrongdoing. Attorneys for Banks insist their client has suffered extended pain and suffering during his recovery, has spent additional time in the hospital recovering and has been caused to spend more money. Additionally, Faulk reported, Banks’ wife also is claiming loss of consortium.

On their part, the defendants have so far fought the charges adamantly.

"We intend to defend all counts aggressively," Baptist Health System Inc., which operates one of the facilities, responded to the charges.

According to the AP, representatives at Princeton Baptist Medical Center previously said the claims are without merit.

"When the facts become known this will be seen as an unfair attempt to damage the reputations of dedicated physicians and their outstanding clinics with sensational claims that are completely false," added Will Axon, a defense lawyer representing both doctors named in Banks’ suit.

As peculiar as Banks’ predicament is, he is far from the only circumcision patient to suffer the same fate: as RT reported previously, a Kentucky men claimed in court that his penis was amputated after the doctors who operated on him in 2007 said they found signs of cancer and had “no reasonable option” other than removing the entire penis unbeknownst to the patient.

In the case of Banks, neither side of the suit has explained yet why, exactly, the plaintiff’s penis was allegedly removed.

Maybe he was all foreskin and little else. A lot of times these days there is a lot more packaging than product, especially with cheap made in china crap.

The old mohel was retiring and wanted a keepsake from his years of work. He took all of the foreskins he had collected over the years to a leatherworker. He went back a week later and the worker gave him a wallet made from the foreskins. The mohel says "What, a little wallet is all I get for forty years of foreskins?" The leather worker says "Yes, but it is a very special wallet, if you rub it it turns into a suitcase."

I doubt the doctors would have removed the penis without adaquate reasons to do so. That said better him than me.

Cut to the quick comes to mind.

I'd say that if he is pretty quick, it sucks to be her.

Lawyer for Doctors Say Amputation Story Untrue


Banks, who is married and does not work due to a disability, did not recall the precise date of the incident but believed it occurred in June, his attorney said.

How we have a horse race.

Any volunteers for jury duty, boys?

Talking *** And now, for something that makes more sense...after the fact... ***

Didn't I read somewhere that a "Johnny Lee Banks, Jr. (emphasis on the 'Jr.')" is filing a petition, in court, to have his named changed from - Johnny Lee Banks, Jr. - to - Les Johnson?

*Bu-dum! Tish!*

Strange story. No explanation of the condition they refer to that led to the surgery. It appears he wasn't having it done for cosmetic or other trivial reasons.

Something related that I don't often share - about 22 years ago I had minor surgery to remove an odd ball of skin that had been left over from my original circumscision. A bit of it was attached on the underside to one side of the head and it was not attractive.

It was done with simple local anesthesia. Odd experience but I'm glad I did it. Not sure why this guy was put under for his.

I feel just the opposite. If they say 'oops' I want to hear it.
