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.
"The man will live the rest of his life without his penis," said Aronfeld.
Aronfeld said because of the doctor's negligence, Milla's life has been irreparably changed.
"When he has to urinate, he has to sit down and urinate like a woman. He can't go to the beach. He can't make love to his wife. He has not worked since the procedure. He's basically living his life in complete seclusion," said Aronfeld.
Milla is suing for pain, suffering and unspecified damages. His wife is also suing for separate damages.
