Penis doctor cited for incompetence
UPI ^ | 9/25/06 | Staff

Posted on 09/25/2006 12:57:18 PM PDT by Millee

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.

Can't decide if the lack of pictures is a good thing or not. :oD

Maybe he should open a sex-change clinic instead.

I wonder if the former President plans to sue.

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.

I wonder if any of his patients were aware of this?

80-yr-old man returns to his cronies following his manly implant and honeymoon with his 20-yr-old bride. They remark he looks exhausted and ask about the implant.

"You just clap to activate and snap when you're finished," he explains. They still don't understand his haggard appearance. "That's how it went the whole time...clap, snap, clap, snap, clap, snap..."
