I'm in pain. My penis has major scarring. There is still a hole in my penis.
It really depends upon the facts. If you scrotum has been pulled down the shaft then the answer is yes. I specialize in these types of cases and have appeared in courts all over the country, including in Callifornia. Give me a call if you would like to discuss your potential case.See question
We had 2ultrasounds at the same office theh told us we were having. Girl 3baby showers And 5months later we had a boy theh even put it on the ultrasound
Be thankful you had a healthy baby boy. Save your money and don't circumcise him. It is needless and dangerous anyway. Put the money you would spend into a savings account for him.See question
Doctor screwed up my son circumcision when he two weeks old. We saw urologist yesterday after pediatrician suggested us. Urologist said that he need to do surgery in order to fix whole size and also revise circumcision. I am really mad that my li...
It very much depends upon the facts. What you describe may or may not be the result of malpractice. It depends very much upon the physical findings by the urologist. If the fixing of the "whole size" refers to the urinary opening, which is know as the meatus, that may not be malpractice. One of the common side effects of even a correctly performed circumcision is the development of a narrowing of the urinary opening known as "meatal stenosis." If that is what your son has, then it is not likely to be malpractice. As to the revision of the circumcision, that also depends on the facts. Many times parents don't think enough skin was taken off and want more taken off. This is often done, although I think it is a poor idea because it may result in too much skin being take off from the shaft. Few doctors, including urologists, seem to correctly understand the penile skin system. I do.See question
Lawyers told me, that, courtroom will not be sensitive to not that significant curvature after circumcision! ; Neither, that frenulum pain, that before circumcision existed, did not change after operation; neither the fact that doctor c...
It does sound like you have a case well worth investigating. I concentrate my practice in botched circumcision cases and have appeared in NY on a case by case basis. Please feel free to contact me to discuss further. Many lawyers do not understand this area of medicine.See question
I have found similar cases all over the country, however the lawyers in my state (that i have contacted so far) all say there is no damages, because there is a back up organ.
This may well be malpractice. It depends upon the facts. And loss of a testicle is a big deal, even though there may be a "backup." You do not say what area of the state you are in. If it is in the San Francisco area I can refer you to an attorney I have done several cases with. Feel free to contact me.See question
My son is in NICU due to a couple of issues during delivery. Two days ago he was circumcised with a Plastibell. (not by my choice) It became swollen, black and blue, and was bleeding badly. (the doctor claims it was a busted blood vessel under th...
This may or may not be malpractice. Only a review of the records and photographs of his penis will allow a definitive answer to be given. As others have said you should take good photos of his penis as it heals. I would do so every day. And keep a diary of his pain and suffering. Then you need a lawyer who understands circumcision issues. Most of my practice involves circumcision and I have done work in South Carolina before by being admitted pro hac vice (i.e. for a particular case). Feel free to contact me to discuss further.See question
My son was circumcised and I felt it did not look right. A pediatrician recently brought up this issue without my even asking and told me it had been done improperly. Should I have to pay for this procedure? Also I am not willing to put my 6 mont...
Whether or not you have a case depends very much upon what is wrong. I cannot tell from your description what, if anything, is wrong. Often a newborn circumcision does not look like enough skin was taken off. However, the penis usually grows into the remaining skin as the boy grows and he ends up looking fully circumcised when he matures. In such a case you would not have a lawsuit. However, other times too much penile shaft skin is taken off and too little inner foreskin is removed, resulting in a buried penis that does need surgical correction. That would be malpractice, I believe. Also, if the round end of the penis was damaged, that too would be malpractice, I believe. You need to have your son examined by a sympathetic pediatric urologist who is not anxious to do more surgery. You also need to consult immediately with an attorney who is knowledgeable regarding botched circumcisions. Most of my practice involves these cases. I have appeared before pro hac vice in Mississippi. I would be happy to speak with you.See question
i wasnt givin information to tell me that there could be certain problems after surgery. i was not givin the option to change my mind before i had this done. It has caused me physical and mental stress
It is hard to say if you have a case without knowing more facts. When was the circumcision performed? What problems are you having? What specific warnings were given to you? Why couldn't you change your mind before proceeding? If your penis is now buried in your pubic fat pad or if your scrotum has been advanced down the shaft away from the body, then you probably have a case worth pursuing. These cases are not easy. I recommend consulting with a lawyer who is knowledgeable in this area. I would be happy to speak with you.See question
I'm due to have my first son very soon and am extremely against circumcision. I've been hearing that doctors/nurses will force mothers to sign circumcision consent forms while they're under the influence of painkillers. I'm thinking of hiring a l...
Unfortunately this has happened. I represented a young man who was a victim of an unwanted circumcision under the same circumstances. The short answer is that generally medical personnel have a fiduciary duty to you and to your son. Therefore, they have a duty to get your consent when you have a clear mind. If you are under the influence of prescription drugs at the time and if they know it then the consent should be held to be invalid and you should be able to sue. However, it is best to be proactive. Put your decision not to circumcise your son in writing. Give it to your obstetrician, to your pediatrician, and to the risk manager of the hospital where you will be giving birth. Make sure they all (and that means the entire OB/GYN group and pediatric group) know of your decision. Tell them you will sue them if they violate your wishes. Then when your son is born have his bassinet marked with masking tape on which you have written "NO CIRCUMCISION!" or something like that. I would be happy to speak with you if you need further advice. Also take a look at www.thewholenetwork.org and www.savingsons.org and www.drmomma.org for other ideas.See question
