HOT ROD PENIS DOC FIRED
A surgeon who allegedly took a photo of a patient’s penis during an operation at a US hospital is no longer working there, it has been announced.
Dr Adam Hansen, of Arizona’s Mayo Clinic Hospital, is accused of taking the snap while conducting gallbladder surgery earlier in December.
The chief of general surgery allegedly showed the photo to fellow surgeons.
The patient is a strip club owner whose penis is tattooed with the words “Hot Rod”.
A member of the surgical staff tipped off local newspaper The Arizona Republic about the incident in an anonymous call on Monday.
The announcement that he was “no longer practising” at the Mayo clinic was posted on the hospital’s website. It is not clear whether he resigned or was dismissed.
On the same day the patient learned about the photo when the Nobel Prize-winning clinic, based in Scottsdale, telephoned him.
The businessman said: “I got a strange call after my surgery from a doctor who said there was a problem. He said Hansen was on the phone and would explain.”
The patient said that the surgeon confessed to having used his mobile phone to take the picture while inserting a catheter into his penis.
The patient, who said the tattoo was done for a $1,000 (£500) bet, continued: “Now I feel violated, betrayed and disgusted.
“The longer I sit here the angrier I get.”
My first reaction after hearing of this story was “Who snitched?!” Not to say that this resident did the most prudent thing by taking these pics but to rat someone out to the press and ruin one’s career? You see, there are a lot of Linda Tripps lurking in our midst while we toil away within our country’s hallowed hospital wards and or’s. She can be your fellow resident, an attending, medical student, nursing supervisor, ultrasonagropher, radiology technician, file clerk, or even the nutritionist. Yes, even the sweet wholesome looking nutritionist who goes by Mary can plunge the knife right into your back and end it all. Whoever said medicine was “safe” and a guaranteed job for life?
Anyhow, tough break for this surgery resident who was chief and in his fifth and final year. Or is it? My advice to Hot Rod Penis Doc if you are out there and listening- Seize this opportunity of a lifetime!!! You got the world’s attention…now take your fifteen minutes of fame and run with it. I think you and Mr. Hot Rod Penis should band together and get into the porn industry. Remember the Bobbits??? Think of all the mad money you could make off this. I think this is a brilliant exit strategy out of medicine! Then you could tell the Mayo Clinic to go suck it (the hot rod penis of course) since MedicineSux!!!
