Man sues doctor for wrongly amputating part of his penis during surgery

A Kentucky man who is suing his surgeon for amputating part of his penis without his consent was at the Kentucky Court of Appeals this week to argue his case further.

In 2007, Phillips Seaton of Waddy, lay on Dr John Patterson’s operating table for a procedure intended only as a circumcision to treat an inflammation.

But during the surgery when the doctor discovered a cancerous growth, he took action to remove it along with part of Seaton’s organ, relying on what Seaton’s lawyer believes is a ‘vague’ medical waiver signed by a man who clearly did not understand it.

Kevin George told the appeals panel that the medical waiver signed by his client contains extremely broad language and that Dr. John Patterson should have sought consent before removing the penis.

‘The point is… a patient has a right,’ George said. ‘The doctor does not have the right to do whatever he wants, even if it turns out to be reasonable.’
