Johnny Lee Banks Jr., 56, filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the Princeton Baptist Medical Center in Birmingham, Alabama, for amputating his penis in June after he went in for a circumcision.

In the lawsuit, Banks says he was never warned that the procedure might result in an amputation, and he never gave his consent for an amputation.

My client is devastated, said Banks attorney John Graves.
Banks, who does not work due to a disability, is seeking an unspecified amount of damages. His wife, Zelda Banks, is also suing for loss of consortium due to the operation.

The lawsuit names in particular Urology Centers of Alabama and Dr. Vincent Michael Bivins, who works at the Baptist Health Center, as well as the Simon-Williamson Clinic and Dr. Alan C. Aikens, who works at that clinic.

Bivins was treating Banks for conditions that led to the circumcision, the suit says, and Aikens was scheduled to perform the procedure.
A statement released by Baptist Health System spokeswoman Kate Darden said the allegations were without merit. 

We intend to defend all counts aggressively, Kate DeWitt Darden said.

In 2011, a Kentucky man filed a similar lawsuit. In that case, the urologist only cut off the tip of the penis, after finding a potentially deadly cancer during the circumcision. In the end, the jury sided with the doctors, saying they exercised precaution.
