Court orders university clinic to pay damages after penile amputation

A French court has ordered a hospital to pay more than 61,000 euros in damages for a penis amputation that became necessary as a result of medical malpractice. The patient's lawyer was disappointed with the judgment published on Wednesday, he had demanded almost one million euros for his client.

The man underwent surgery in 2014 after being diagnosed with cancer at the University Hospital of Nantes. However, due to a medical error, his risk of relapse did not decrease as expected. In the years that followed, further interventions had to be carried out, and the penis was finally completely removed.

Lawyer Georges Parastatis criticized the verdict for failing to take into account the physical and mental suffering of his client caused by the amputation and announced an appeal.
