Phillip Seaton says when he awoke from the surgery, he discovered that the doctor had removed his entire penis. The doctor who performed the surgery, Frankfort Urologist Dr. John Patterson says he removed Seaton’s penis because he discovered a cancerous growth on it. He says he performed the procedure to keep it from spreading. But the lawsuit alleges that the doctor was not given authorization to remove his penis. It indicates that performing the procedure deprived Seaton the opportunity to get a second opinion. The cancer turned out to be a stage one cancer, considered by many medical experts to be treatable.
