Therefore, the intervention was scheduled for August 4th. On that day, while removing the lump, the surgeon also performed a vasectomy on the body of the child under 4 years old; accidentally, they think.
Explaining the procedure and its shortcomings, the parents filed a lawsuit against the hospital.
“After the operation, the hernial sac was taken to pathology. The pathology report determined that tissue from the vas deferens was included in the submitted sample: an unwanted vasectomy,” the document reads.

Although the doctor apologized to the family, the parents sued her for more than $250,000 for possible consequential damages to the minors. Likewise, her attorneys point out that there was medical negligence in causing fertility problems in the child of childbearing age.
“An involuntary vasectomy at age 4 is an unacceptable outcome when a patient is undergoing hernia repair. Furthermore, the emotional and psychological implications of living with this knowledge are unfathomable, first for the parents and then for the child themselves,” the specialists said, according to the Miami Herald.
