My son's circumcision was botched causing him chordee (upward bent) and permanent scarring, the doctor that performed the circumcision referred us to a surgeon for 2nd opinion, at the 1st visit, the surgeon lied that my son was born with a chordee but when i showed him the pencil-straight picture of erected penis before the circumcision, he was rattled and told me the circumcision doctor (might have) damaged the penis. In the medical record, he acknowledged there was significant bent of about 30-40% of the penis, he didn't say what caused the chordee he repaired and what the other doctor did wrong. With this lack of detail, i don't think i have a case, (right?).
What can i do please to "force" the surgeon to include this missing causation-detail. We have follow up appointment with him.The negligent Dr. did not refer us specifically to a named Dr. but rather to a very big Children's Hospital urology department (who on their own randomly chose the Surgeon to attend to my son) that kind of give us hope of credibility and transparency. Of course the attorney we are planning to hire must get a medical expert to review the records. I hope that the fact that the surgeon obviously excluded the causation in his records and what the referral Dr. did wrong will not negatively affect this case even before the Jury (if it gets to that). I am a layman in legal matters. Thanks
