Angry surgeon chops off manhood

The doctor got angry after making a mistake

An angry Romanian doctor has cut off a patient's p-e-n-i-s during surgery and chopped it into small pieces.

Surgeon Naum Ciomu was operating on patient Nelu Radonescu, 36, to correct a testicular malformation when he suddenly lost his temper.

Grabbing a scalpel, he sliced off the p-e-n-i-s in front of shocked nursing staff, and then placed it on the operating table where he chopped it into small pieces before storming out of the operating theatre at Bucharest hospital.

A Romanian court has now awarded Radonescu £20,000 costs - to pay for the operation to rebuild his ruined p-e-n-i-s using tissue from his arm - as well as £100,000 in damages.

The medical costs will be paid by the hospital's insurer, but doctors' unions have criticised the decision that the money for the damages has to be paid by the doctor. They say the move sets a dangerous precedent and that Professor Ciomu, a urologist and lecturer in anatomy, has already been punished enough after having his medical licence suspended.

They said he had been under stress and had lost his temper after he accidentally cut the man's urinary channel and "overreacted" to the situation. He told the court it was a temporary loss of judgement due to personal problems.

Vice-president of the Romanian Doctors Union, Vasile Astarastoae, said: "Ciomu's case is a dangerous precedent for all Romanian doctors. In future doctors may have to think very carefully about what work they undertake."

The director of the ophthalmology hospital in Bucharest, Dr Monica Pop, said that doctors would in future avoid any cases where they could end up in court having to pay damages.

She added: "Doctors in Romanian earn too little to be able to pay amounts like this. As a result it will be entirely fair if they only accept cases where they cannot make mistakes. The only way this can be avoided is if the insurance companies cover all the risk."

Now that the UK is open to Romanians, I hope we don't have a flood of their surgeons coming over.
They say they are going rebuild the unfortunate chap using tissue from his arm.
Fat lot of good that would do me. I could'nt work with half an arm missing!

I am squirming! I've heard of road rage, but operation rage? Erection rage? I wouldn't have the balls...

Seriously, the man from the Romanian Doctors Union is complaining about certain medical work not being done? In the United States, many areas don't have certain types of doctors for fear of malpractice.

So let me see if I have this straight. The surgeon got mad and took it out of the patient? Not very nice...Who is going to pay for the psychiatric counseling the patient is going to need?

"Overreacted"? No, "overreacted" is when you throw the scalpel on the floor and storm out of the room. Cutting off someone's private parts is psychotic!

If he can't pay the damages, he should have to have his p*enis removed, too.
