A Shelby County man and his wife said two doctors amputated the man’s penis without his consent, and have filed a lawsuit.
According to the lawsuit, Philip Seaton went to have a circumcision last October. Seaton said when he woke up from the procedure, he realized his penis had been amputated.
Kevin George, the plaintiff’s attorney, said [Dr.] Patterson amputated the organ after finding cancer, but he only had consent to remove the foreskin.
“Sometimes you have an emergency and you have to do this, but he could very easily closed him up and said, ‘Here are your options. You have cancer,’ and the family would have said, ‘We want a second opinion. This is a big deal,’” George said.
