Now you see it, and now you don’t. Former Florida resident Enrique
Milla has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against his anesthesiologist
after losing his penis. Milla underwent penile implant surgery, an elective
procedure, for erectile dysfunction, but after his surgery he got gangrene,
and doctors were forced to amputate his penis.
Milla, who has since been deported to Peru, settled a lawsuit against the
surgeon who performed the penile implant surgery in 2009. His reason for
going after the anesthesiologist? Milla claims the anesthesiologist was
responsible for making sure Milla was fit for surgery, and he wasn’t–he
had high blood pressure and diabetes, and those, Milla believes, should
have been red flags.
