HAIL: Health Affairs are investigating how a private hospital in Hail managed to leave a two-year-old boy without a male member after going in for a circumcision.
A Health Affairs spokesman said that the boy appeared to have suffered a “wound” to his penis during the procedure and that the doctor in charge was being investigated.
An uncle of the child said that after the initial circumcision his nephew was taken from the hospital and admitted to the public King Khaled Hospital in Hail due to a “thrombosis and burns” where he remained for nearly 20 days.
“Ten days after he’d left hospital we were taken aback to find his whole member had fallen off,” he said.
“He’s only two. I don’t know what will become of him when he grows up.”
He said the family had made a complaint to Health Affairs asking for the doctor responsible to be punished and for “a male member to be attached” as a replacement.
