Court of appeals turns away man in amputation case

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Another setback for the man who sued his doctor for amputating part of his penis.

The Kentucky Court of Appeals turned away efforts by Phillip Seaton to force Dr. John Patterson to compensate him for the removal, without seeking his consent first, during a 2007 operation.

Patterson maintains he found cancer in the man's penis during surgery and it had to be removed.

Seaton claims he never authorized the amputation, nor was he given a chance to seek a second opinion.

Seaton sued Patterson in Shelby County Circuit Court in 2008.
