This case involves a 43-year-old patient who had a reverse vasectomy after consulting his partner. However, soon after the procedure he started to experience severe testicular pain and swelling. It was found he had developed a hematoma in his scrotum and his urologist decided it would be best to drain it. However, during the procedure, the urologist’s incision was misplaced and instead hit a nerve in the area. The patient subsequently suffered permanent nerve damage and is no longer able to conduct daily activities without pain or discomfort.

Expert Witness Response E-015250

I treat many patients who have nerve entrapment after pelvic surgeries. I feel comfortable determining if the nerve damage could have been caused by the surgery and the cost of future care.
