Birmingham, Alabama -

A man in Birmingham, Alabama is suing Princeton Baptist Medical Center for allegedly amputating his penis. He and his wife claim that he went into the hospital for a routine circumcision, but came out with his penis removed instead. The lawyer representing his case says that he doesn't understand why doctors would have done this, and added that his client is "devastated" and "inconsolable." 

The lawsuit names Urology Centers of Alabama, but they refrained from comment. Baptist Health System, Inc. is also mentioned. They say the allegations don't have merit and  that they will defend themselves against the claims.
