A South Florida man is reportedly suing his doctor after complications from a penile implant surgery caused him to lose his penis.
It all began when 62-year-old Enrique Milla, a married man of 25 years, went to a doctor to discuss his sexual dysfunction. After consulting with an urologist, Milla decided to have a penile implant.
His attorney Spence Aronfeld told CBS station WFOR-TV in Miami news partners Newsradio610 WIOD that decision was a huge mistake.
"The problem is that Mr. Milla has uncontrolled diabetes and it is absolutely, 100 percent, contraindicated - which means it should not be done on anyone with uncontrolled diabetes because diabetics have a rate of infection then people who don't' have diabetes," said Aronfeld.
Milla went ahead with the surgery and developed a very serious infection which caused his penis to become gangrenous; it was then removed.
