Man at hospital for bladder surgery ends up with circumcised wiener instead

British man who was mistakenly circumcised by hospital awarded $24K

A hospital in Britain cut its losses and agreed to pay a former patient who was circumcised after a mix-up by staff.

Terry Brazier, 70, went to Leicester Royal Infirmary for treatment for a bladder condition but staff mistook him for another patient.

The hospital apologized after an investigation into the confusion and awarded Brazier a payout worth about $24,000.

“They didn’t know what to say when they found out they’d done it, they said they can’t send me back to the ward and they needed to talk to me,” he told The Daily Star.

Brazier added that it was “a real surprise" to find out which procedure he received.

“We take events like this very seriously and carried out a thorough investigation at the time to ensure that we learnt from this incident and do all we can to avoid it happening again," Andrew Furlong, medical director at University Hospitals of Leicester, said in a statement. "Whilst money can never undo what happened, we hope this payment provides some compensation.”

Sauce
Him being 70yrs the doctors gave his wiener a face lift. Guess it didn't turned out that shabby. I mean at 70yrs it's beyond turtle skin. $24,000 he probably can spend now on a few old ladies.

Re: Man at hospital for bladder surgery ends up with circumcised wiener instead

They say he was mixed up with another patient? So was there another guy who came in for a circumcision and got unneeded Bladder surgery instead?

Pretty messed up if such an outcome did occur.

The surgeon, Doctor Silverburg, refused to comment.

Only $24k! Peanuts, peanuts! If it'd been in the US, the lawsuit would have been for $24 million!

But, inquiring minds want to know if the hospital will provide the correct bladder surgery free of charge -- for the man's trouble, the mix-up and all. These articles never provide closure.

It’s Great Britain, The surgery would have been free of charge already.

And speaking as a physician who routinely performs elective circumcisions on unsuspecting patients three or four times a week, this is a concerning legal precedent.

Yes, I suspected that the original surgery would have been 'free' anyway, since Britain has been on socialized medicine since the 1950s.

No such thing as “free”.

Only an American would have asked that question.

I feel my penis is worth more than $24K. Maybe just the tip.

Re: Man at hospital for bladder surgery ends up with circumcised wiener instead

Cool. This is just the sort of topical issue I wanted to read about first thing in the morning.

Had it happened to me, I don't think monetary compensation would be enough to quell my anger. I would probably have to track down the surgeon in question and perform a little "face lift" on him as well. But I would just as well settle for his medical license being revoked.

On a related subject, it's interesting how men getting violated is more typically viewed as a source of humor rather than outrage. Some poor old dude undergoes involuntary mutilation. Cue laugh track. Imagine making a similar joke about a woman undergoing an involuntary hysterectomy.

A circumcision is a tad different than a hysterectomy.

A violation of one's body is a violation. Was that point unclear, or are you just intent on defending this thread's inherent lack of decency for some reason?

Never mind. I probably don't care to know the answer to that.

I hoped he tipped the surgeon.

I guess he can no longer shop at Dicks Sporting Hoods.

I really hope for the surgery they used cutting edge technology.

Now he's really going to be going at everything half-cocked.

I guess to all these circumcision jokes, you'll just tell me to cut it off.

He's right though. Doing research when we had our son, we learned how unnecessary and often dangerous this procedure is. All infant genital surgeries need to be banned, they belong to a dark time of humanity's past.

Unnecessary? Absolutely. Dangerous? Hardly. I do them almost every day, in my office. It's no more dangerous than piercing or any other minor procedure.
That said, I ALWAYS tell parents that it is not necessary and there's no reason to do it besides wanting that sort or appearance. Yet way more want to have it done than not. Any time a parent is unsure I tell them don't do it. If you don't know for sure that you want one, you shouldn't get it.
(I personally thanked Penn Jillette for including Circumcision as an episode of 'Bullshit'. Told him he needed to get the word out.)
But when you say "all genital surgeries need to be banned" it just shows your lack of knowledge in the area. Hypospadius is a common condition affecting 1 in 250 males that needs surgical correction in infancy.
