Surgeons amputated part of a patient’s penis and now he claims $ 10 million
October 5, 2012
Michael D. Nash from Louisville filed a lawsuit for a ‘medical negligence’ which ended with the partial amputation of his penis.
The incident occurred in a VA hospital in Lexington when Nash underwent surgery on his penis.
According to the lawyer, “After the operation, a nurse puts him in the groin freezing ice and freezing causes limb, which eventually caused gangrene.”
And he argued that: “In addition to rob someone of his age, virility, also robbed the simple ability to urinate just like anyone else in this world.” “It’s a senseless tragedy that should never have happened.”
Michael Nash, 61, entered the hospital on October 28, 2010 for circumcision and penile implant.
The limb gangrene forced doctors to cut five inches of his penis and two years later he will undergo reconstructive surgery that allows urination.
