A man was accidentally circumcised after a hospital in England mistakenly did the wrong procedure.
The patient was supposed to have a cystoscopy, a procedure which examines inside the bladder using a camera. Surgeons instead removed his foreskin after mixing up his medical notes with another patient who was meant to have a circumcision. The error was one of eight mistakes that took place at the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust last year.
Moira Durbridge, director of safety and risk at Leicester’s Hospitals said, “We remain deeply and genuinely sorry to those patients involved, and of course we have personally apologized to each one.
