Skip to comments.Penis doctor cited for incompetence

The state of Illinois has moved to revoke the medical license of a Chicago doctor accused of leaving patients with deformed penises.
A total 45 malpractice claims have been filed against Sheldon Burman from his work at the Male Sexual Dysfunction Clinic, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Monday. The state has filed a request to revoke Burman's license for a "pattern of practice" showing "incapacity or incompetence to practice."
Burman's clinic has lost millions of dollars in court cases stemming from the procedure, which the American Urological Association has labeled unsafe.
Lawrence Griffin, an attorney for a man who underwent a penis-enlargement procedure at Burman's clinic in 2003 said the doctor left his client with an organ "that doesn't even resemble a penis."
"It's absolutely grotesque," he told the Sun-Times.
Burman, a former respected heart surgeon, said he taught himself the penis enlargement procedure and has no formal background in urology or plastic surgery. He told the newspaper he stands by every penis surgery he has performed since entering the field in 1981, saying patients who end up with deformed penises do not follow proper aftercare procedures.
For the sake of the victims I hope the judge doesn't throw the case out due to insufficient evidence.
I'm sure they can find a subpoena somewhere...
Sounds like he made a few too many boners.
54 posts & you haven't found it yet??? tsk-tsk-tsk... ;o)
Millee,I saw the title of the thread and the only thing I could think of was..."after four years of undergrad study, four years of medical school,at least several years of postgraduate training,this guy could have specialized in the brain,lungs,colon,bones,heart,etc...and he wound up doing *that*?"
A bunched rod lost norms
I like yours better :)
I wonder if that judge from the penis pump case is available.
When I looked at the headline too quickly I thought it said, "Impotence".
I knew that was you before even seeing your name....
Something tells me that this doctor is probably not so cocksure of his talents anymore.
"A Sheldon can do your income taxes, if you need a root canal, Sheldon's your man... but humpin' and pumpin' is not Sheldon's strong suit. It's the name. 'Do it to me Sheldon, you're an animal Sheldon, ride me big Shel-don.' Doesn't work."
Billy Crystal!!! LOL!!!
I know I have ben under the weather...
That is not my problem...
Best laugh of the day!!
Probably when he was a teenager.
