Filed under: Uncategorized : A Fulton County jury has awarded $1.8 million in damages to a boy injured in a botched circumcision.

The state court jury gave another $500,000 to the boy’s mother in the decision rendered Friday.

The case involves a child, identified only as D.P. Jr., who was born at South Fulton Medical Center in 2004. In a suit filed two years later, his mother contended that the doctor who circumcised him removed too much tissue and that his pediatrician failed to respond when a nurse complained of excessive bleeding. The boy’s penis was severed.


The jury found that both the pediatrician, Dr. Cheryl Kendall, and the physician who performed the circumcision, Dr. Haiba Sonyika, were negligent. South Fulton Medical Center was absolved of liability.

The pediatrician’s lawyer, Roger Harris, said he disagreed that the jury’s decision indicated that Kendall was negligent because she didn’t go to the hospital. “We believe there was error committed during the course of the trial,” he said.

In 1985, the penises of two infants were nearly destroyed during circumcisions with an electric cauterizing needle at Northside Hospital. Lawsuits filed against both doctors by the parents of the infants resulted in out-of-court settlements.
