MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

It doesn't happen often, but when a doctor botches a child's circumcision, it's heart-breaking.

Maggie Rhodes is dealing with that heartbreak right now, after a catastrophic mistake on the operating table.

Removal of the foreskin from a child's penis is rooted in concerns about health, hygiene and religion. But some question the necessity of the procedure.

Rhodes is sorry she ever took her young son to get circumcised.

"After I went home and I discovered that my son's penis was not there, I immediately froze, like, oh my God," Rhodes recalls.

The mother said she couldn't believe what happened when she took her three-month-old son Ashton to Christ Community Health Center on Broad Avenue for a circumcision in August. She says doctors told her the procedure would take about 20 minutes.

But after a couple hours, Ashton was still in surgery.

"It took them about three hours to do the circumcision and so my baby screamed the whole three hours, like the whole process," Rhodes said. "Then even when she gave him back to us, he was still screaming."

Rhodes said the doctor performing the surgery obviously botched the procedure. But when it was over, she says they simply returned her screaming son to her, never telling her about the devastating mistake that had happened in the operating room.

"I should have been notified that something went wrong in this room with your baby," she said. "I wasn't notified.  They gave me back my baby like nothing was wrong. They said, 'here go your son.' Yeah, something went wrong in that room." (you're crying/screaming baby should have been enough "notification"...just sayingSleepy)

It's something Rhodes said she didn't find out about until she went home with a still screaming son, and a diaper filled with blood.

She said her curious sister finally discovered Ashton's mutilated penis.
 
"When my sister pulled the cloth back, it was covered in blood and it was no penis there," Rhodes said.

All that was left was a partial penis and his tiny testicles. Rhodes said Ashton urinates through a hole in his penis. She says she can't imagine what she'll say to her son, when he's old enough to understand what happened to him.

"Like, 'Momma like, how could this happen to me? How could this happen to me?,'" she said. "How could you explain that to your child that you don't have a penis that they have to reconstruct one or you probably have might not never be able to have kids? That don't sit well with me at all."

Rhodes has hired an attorney and is pursuing a medical malpractice suit against Christ Community Health Centers.

As for little Ashton, a reconstructive surgery planned for October has been rescheduled for early next year.

FOX13 News contacted Christ Community Health Centers for a comment. We're told the CEO is aware of our request, but so far has not returned our repeated calls.

I'm sad this happened to her baby.......


However......


I wouldn't deliver my child at a health CLINIC.... I wouldn't have any major surgery at a CLINIC so why would you take your baby to have his penis CLIPPED at a second rate minute clinic????

I'm just saying.

They didn't even explain to her what happened.

I was thinking that too... but hey people have to work with whatever options are avail.

My second issue is that many of our people don't bother to ask questions and demand answers when we put our lives and well being in the hands of these people. I can't see myself taking my screaming child home without even questioning why he/she is screaming and why the procedure took so long. I've heard hundreds of stories from friends and family about doctors' visits (usually at these hood clinics) where something went wrong, or they felt uncomfortable about something but didn't speak up smh.
Def not blaming the mother, but this story should be a lesson to all of our people to not be afraid to speak up when issues arise and not to turn a blind eye while at these facilities.

Memphis is home to some top ranked health care facilities.

She had options. I agree she may not have known of them but when you are responsible for the life of another human being.... might be time to start researching and asking some questions but......

I digress.

Anyway, I hope she wins big time.

when I had my boys done the doctor each time spoke to us how to wash the kids and how the little ring weeks fall off when things were healed. I'm surprised she didn't ask questions about the procedure, or research it especially since she waited for 3 months to do it. Not blaming her, but waiting 3 hours for a simple sniping should have been a red flag.

If the clinic could not do the procedure, they should not have attempted to do so to begin with. Since they said they could do the procedure, I don't see the problem with her taking her baby there to get it done.

And the fact they did not admit to wrong doing after the procedure took 3 hours instead of 20 minutes? They knew they fcuked up.

Get that cash girl.

If he was three months he should have been seen by a urologist to get snipped he was too old for a normal circ. I have circed all 5 of my boys and have never had any issues at all and they had the old fashion type circ not the new plastibell ones.

So sad for that baby but there were all types of red flags with that story.

wowwww. i can't believe they didn't tell her...and how do you severe an entire penis??? this is such a routine procedure that mistakes like this shouldn't happen.  and why did it take 3 hours?! so many questions...they probably spent so much time trying to re-attach it...that poor baby.  how can this be fixed?????????

nevertheless, im still getting circumcisions for mine.  the health issues related to uncircumcised penises is not a myth.

This is very sad.
My godson just had his done and we were there the whole time. We were shown a video of the entire procedure and everthing was explained to us by the Doctor's wife including what can go wrong.  He was nearly six months old.

Once they realized the surgery was botched, they didn't place the child under anesthesia?

This is sooo heartbreaking! I agree with CarolinaCutie, if a place is offering a service, it is up to them to perform the procedure correctly. It may have been a health center but Im assuming it is still licensed. I place no blame on the mother and I feel for her! And the damage was probably already done after those initial 30 minutes.

THIS IS HORRIBLE.  Just b/c she had it done at a health center don't mean a thing.  The doctor who delivered my son did his circumcision in the doctors office where I got my care.  THESE people just didn't know what they were doing!  YEAH I'd be either owning that health clinic or it would be shut down for bankruptcy buy the time I'm finish with them.

Aren't health clinics mostly non-for-profit. She won't get much. Jesus!!! my mind cannot fathom that the poor baby was in freaking pain!

That's like saying getting your titties chopped off will lower the risk of breast cancer.

I don't like foreskin.
A lot of men smell really bad under there. And it sucks if it is a decent man otherwise.
Sometimes they are just not aware of it....and it is awkward to tell them.
sh*t mothers and fathers should have taught them from before...


Anyway, all my sons will cut on the 8th days per usual.

Sang I don't understand how someone that was born after the 70's can be un-circumsized unless its a religious thang. I smelled it once from a guy in highschool and this nicca didn't even give me warning. Just pladddow. I was like WTF is that smell and what is that? Ugliest thing I ever saw. I wanted to vommit.DeadDeadDead

The health center is probably cheaper than a hospital. In NC Medicaid does not cover circumcision. I pray that she gets her son counseling when he is older. I'm surprised she wasn't with her son during the process. Parents should be allowed in any operation to soothe their child.

Poor little fella. My kids were circumcised at a surgical center. They explain everything to you and they put you in these really nice rooms for the baby to recover in for an hour when the procedure is done. The nurses show you the circumcision and show you how to care for it. You don't leave until the baby has at least one wet diaper. My babies didn't even cry. They numb the area before the procedure.

It sounds like this clinic was rinky dink and careless. Poor baby. I hope she sues. 


And a 20 min procedure going into a three hour procedure should have alerted the mom that something wasn't right especially if the baby was screaming the whole time. Lawd I would have bum rushed into that room to get my baby.

Maybe his little penis will still grow some. he is young. I don't know how much of it is gone. Or if it is even possible.
