A BUNGLING surgeon chopped off a toddler’s willy in a botched circumcision – before dying of a heart attack just days later.

The three-year-old’s penis was mutilated by “experienced” Dr Pedro Abrantes in  Malacacheta, Brazil, last month.

Alberthy Camargos, the tot’s distraught dad, told how he discovered the blunder when a nurse changed the bandages.

He wept: “It was only a couple hours after the surgery. When they lifted the gauze there was no visible penis, just a stump.

“I went crazy and dropped to the ground. I went into shock. I tried to move, but I was paralysed and needed to be supported by nurses.”

“The doctor assured me that everything was normal. He told me that he had removed the excess skin and the penis would reappear in 10 days.

“I felt disgusted by the answer. They were treating me like a fool and I lost total confidence in the medical team.

“I knew just by looking and from hearing my son’s cries of pain and seeing the disorientated state he was in, that the surgery had gone wrong and my son’s body had been mutilated.”

A medical report into the blunder said there had been: “laceration of the foreskin skin with open and bleeding cavernous bodies (spongy-like areas)… and the inadvertent partial amputation of the penis… (leaving) the base of the penis”.

A spokesperson for Dr Carlos Marx Municipal Hospital said an internal enquiry is underway and the medical team that assisted Dr Abrantes is under investigation.

A health official said the deceased surgeon had a medical career spanning almost 30 years and there had been “no records of problems with his professional conduct while working in the public health service”.

Police chief, Mariana Grassi said: “We have collected all the documents surrounding this case and we are now in the process of hearing testimonies from those involved.

“We need to establish whether Dr Abrantes, who died under non-suspicious circumstances, was responsible solely for the medical error or whether other professionals were involved.”
