South Dakota Man Sues Hospital Over Circumcision

April 16, 2012, 2:25 PM

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A prison inmate in South Dakota is suing a hospital for performing a circumcision on him nearly 30 years ago.

Twenty-eight-year-old Dean Cochrun is imprisoned at the South Dakota State Penitentiary in Sioux Falls for kidnapping. He's suing Sanford Hospital, previously known as Sioux Valley Hospital, for performing the circumcision when he was an infant.

Cochrun says in a complaint filed Friday in federal court that he was "recently made aware of the fact that I had been circumcised," and that the procedure has left him feeling inadequate and unable to fully enjoy sex.

Cochrun's suit asks for $1,000 for compensatory and punitive damages. Sanford Hospital officials responded in writing to the complaint, saying that the circumcision would not have been done without a parent's consent.
