Botched Circumcision leads to $31 million dollar jury verdict
ATLANTA, Sept. 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Pope McGlamry P.C. is pleased to announce that on Friday, September 21, 2018, their clients, Stacie Willis and her 4 year old son, referred to as Baby D due to privacy reasons, were awarded $31 million in a botched circumcision case in the State Court of Clayton County, Georgia before the Hon. Shalonda Jones-Parker. The malpractice suit was against Melissa Jones, Dr. Brian Register, Anne Sigouin, Life Cycle OB/GYN, LLC, Life Cycle Pediatrics, LLC, Dr. Abigail Kamishlian and Daffodil Pediatric and Family Medical Services, LLC.
The botched circumcision, performed by Certified Nurse Midwife Melissa Jones, took place in October of 2013 at Life Cycle OB/GYN. The end of the child’s penis was caught in the Mogen clamp, causing the tip of the glans to be amputated. Dr. Brian Register, an OB/GYN and supervising physician, was then called in to help stop the hemorrhaging from the end of Baby D’s penis. The clinic’s owner, Anne Sigouin, who also owns Life Cycle Pediatrics, was called for assistance. Rather than provide critical information, Sigouin advised Dr. Register and Nurse Jones to call the boy’s pediatrician, Dr. Abigail Kamishlian. Dr. Kamishlian advised that Ms. Willis should take her child home and go to the emergency department if the bleeding re-started.
