A surgeon at a prestigious US hospital is facing a disciplinary hearing after he allegedly took a photo of a patient’s penis during an operation.
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, Sean Dubowik, 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.
