Can Adult Circumcisions be Botched? Absolutely. Most adult circumcisions are done by the "sleeve resection" method. If the surgeon does not estimate correctly how much skin to leave he will take off too much shaft skin, will cover the shaft with pubic hair bearing skin from the base of the penis, will advance the junction of the penile shaft and the scrotum from the base of the shaft to mid-shaft or beyond. This results in a penis whose functional length, both flaccid and erect, has been significantly reduced. Erections can be impossible or painful.
This is from a urology journal: "Dr. G.J. Alter published his surgical technique for the correction of penoscrotal web, “Correction of Penoscrotal Web,” in the Journal of Sex Medicine in 1977. Dr. Alter defines the penoscrotal web as 'an obtuse attachment of scrotal skin onto the ventral shaft, which shortens the functional and visual ventral penile length.' He attributes most penoscrotal webs to aggressive circumcision in which too much ventral penile skin is excised."
Pursuing a claim will require finding a Vermont lawyer to help. That's your first step. Second, your attorney will need to find a medical expert willing to testify that this complication is the result of poor, over-aggressive technique and NOT just post-op scar tissue development. You found an article to suggest some physicians indeed believe this is over-aggressive surgery. That's helpful and should assist your Vermont lawyer. The next step is building a significant amount of damages. This will be pain, disfigurement, and medical expenses (among others). Your damage model will have to be large so that the costly pursuit of a medical malpractice lawsuit is justified.
Find that Vermont medical negligence attorney and have a talk. Good luck.
