Attorney: Genital amputation claim is 'totally false'


The attorney for physicians accused of amputating a man's genitals during a circumcision procedure released a statement on Tuesday saying the claims are "totally false," adding that a motion to dismiss the complaint has been filed.

In that motion to dismiss, Florie says the physicians, Dr. Vincent Michael Bivins and Dr. Alan C. Aikens, have never "performed a circumcision involving removal of any tissue" or "never at any time 'amputated' all or any part of [the patient's] penis."

The patient's attorney, John Graves, filed the medical malpractice lawsuit back on July 22 against Princeton Baptist Medical Center, Urology Centers of Alabama, Simon-Williamson Clinic, and two doctors claiming that he went in for a circumcision, but when he woke up, doctors had amputated part of his genitals.

Graves spoke to FOX6 News on July 25. "He had some other health problems and the procedure was recommended by his physician as a way to prevent future infection," Graves said about the lawsuit.

Florie adds that he plans on seeking all appropriate sanction and disciplinary action against the patient and attorney John Graves. He says Graves has admitted publicly he filed the lawsuit without reviewing any of his client's medical records.
