(Fox 13)-- A Memphis mother is dealing with heartbreak after taking her three-month-old son in for circumcision surgery. Doctors at Ashton to Christ Community Health Center removed the child's penis instead of just the foreskin. A procedure which is supposed to take 20-minutes took about "three hours" according to Maggie Rhodes, the child's mother. To make matters worse, the injury wasn't discovered until she brought the child home and her sister removed the bandage. According to the Fox 13 Memphis report, staff handed the child back to her and acted like "nothing was wrong," adding "It took them about three hours...so my baby screamed the whole three hours...even when they gave him back to us, he was still screaming." Maggie Rhodes has hired an attorney and is pursuing a malpractice lawsuit. Her child will have reconstructive surgery next year.
