Surgeon cut off testicle by mistake'at Bury hospital Manchester
A patient lost a testicle during an operation because the Surgeon cut it off by mistake, a General Medical Council hearing has been told.
Dr Sulieman Al Hourani was only supposed to cut out a cyst, but removed the whole right testicle instead.
Dr Al Hourani was a locum surgeon at Fairfield General Hospital at the time of the surgery.
He is accused of misconduct and also of stealing medication.
The doctor, who is now practising in Jordan, also injected himself with a drug meant for a patient while the nurse wasn't looking..
The mistake was made as a nurse helping the surgeon turned her back to get a stitch.
Literally as the nurse turned away to get a transfixion stitch, the incident occurred and the testicle was removed.
When she turned around the testicle was gone.
