BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -
An Alabama man who went to the hospital for a routine circumcision says doctors mistakenly amputated his penis.
Johnny Lee Banks Jr. of Birmingham and his wife, Zelda Banks, filed the lawsuit Tuesday in Jefferson County. They're suing the hospital, doctors and others for what they say is medical malpractice.

The lawsuit says Banks went to Princeton Baptist Medical Center in Birmingham last month for a circumcision. The suit alleges the man's penis was gone when he awoke.
The suit says that the mistaken amputation has caused the man extreme pain, and that his wife also is suffering.
