Man Given Vasectomy By Mistake After Going Into Hospital For Minor Op

Recommended Posts


A man who went into hospital for a minor operation was given a vasectomy by MISTAKE.

Doctors at Royal Liverpool Hospital have tried to reverse the blunder, but the victim now faces an anxious wait to see if he will be able to have children.

Health chiefs described the incident as a “never event” – a medical mistake that should never happen – and a case of “wrong site surgery".

The hospital today “apologised unreservedly” to the patient and said the surgeon has been suspended from carrying out operations during an internal investigation, the Liverpool Echo reports.

The man has not been identified and the NHS trust refused to disclose his age.

Dr Peter Williams, medical director, said: “We can confirm a patient who was scheduled to have a different minor urological procedure was wrongly given a vasectomy.

“We have apologised unreservedly to the patient and we are offering him our full support. We greatly regret the distress this has caused him.

So does this mean they had to do the op they where scheduled to do again?

This isn't the type of mistake you expect!

Surgeon was on autopilot after a night out, maybe.

Personally I'm on his side, all Scousers who are hospitalised for any reason should be given a vasectomy, even the girls. :P

3) Like most people, Hurshell Ralls of Wichita Falls, Texas, was delighted to awake from surgery to hear that his bladder cancer had gone. The 67-year-old was less thrilled to hear that doctors, concluding they were 'better safe than sorry', had decided to remove his ***** and testicles along with it.

Yep that would leave you devastated especailly if you weren't warned prior!
