A negligent obstetrician severed off 30-40% of a baby boy’s penis when conducting a circumcision. The baby’s pediatrician was also named negligent in the medical malpractice suit because she had failed to examine the boy after the injury in which the severed piece could have been reattached. The damage takes into account the disfiguring and disabling injury that will last the boy his entire lifetime. The jury awarded the mother of the boy $2.3 million in damages.
