A Fort Bend County, Texas family has filed a lawsuit after doctors at the Texas Children’s Hospital accidentally performed a partial vasectomy on their 4-year-old son.

Snip Snip...Oops

What should have been a fairly routine surgery turned out to be a shocker for the family of a 4-year-old Fort Bend County boy. The family took their son to Texas Children's Hospital for a surgical procedure to help with his hernia problem, but something went very wrong.

According to KPRC 2 Investigates, Dr. Susan L. Jarosz performed the laparoscopic surgery in August and ended up cutting the wrong tube, giving the young kid a partial vasectomy.

Read that again - she ended up giving a 4-year-old child a vasectomy.

The boy's parents were understandably in shock upon finding out the news and have since filed a $1 million lawsuit against both Texas Children's and Dr. Jarosz.

Lawsuit Filed

Randy Sorrels with the Sorrels Law Firm said,.

So, the doctor went in laparoscopically, which means not an open incision, and doing it on a 2-D model, on television, failed to identify exactly what she was cutting and cut the wrong tube.

The lawsuit claims that Dr. Jarosz  “breached the standard of care by failing to exercise ordinary care while performing hernia repair surgery on the little boy”. As a result the boy mill more than likely face:

- future medical expenses
- future pain
- mental anguish
- future disfigurement
- physical impairment
- future expenses for fertility treatments

What Did Texas Children's Hospital Have To Say?

Well, not much.

Hospital administrators issued a statement to KPRC 2 Investigates, saying,

Texas Children’s Hospital’s top priority is the health and well-being of our patients. Due to patient privacy requirements, we are unable to comment.

Whole lotta nothin'.

All I can say is that Dr. Jarosz better have some good malpractice insurance.

Bet You Didn't Know: 10 Bizarre Texas Laws Still on the Books

Many states still have strange laws on the books that aren’t enforced or taken seriously anymore, and Texas is no exception.

Most of these laws are just funny now, but at one time, there was a valid (or at least somewhat valid) reason for them to exist.

Texas has plenty of strange rules and regulations that you could technically be prosecuted for if you violate them, since they've never been amended. Some of these are only for specific cities and not state-wide, but all of them are pretty odd!

Let's take a look at 10 of the weirdest ones in the Lone Star State.

Top 20 Restaurants Central Texans Wish Would Come to Temple

A while back, I asked the good people of Temple if they could picture a good restaurant to fill the lot on North General Bruce Drive where the soon to be torn down Long John Silver's stood.

This was before it was announced that a Dutch Bros. Coffee location would open there (which was one of the places I predicted as a contender in our article).

So now Dutch Bros. is open in that spot, but the responses to my survey were interesting because they paint a picture of just how diverse Temple's population is. People recommended some familiar restaurants with locations in the surrounding area, but also a few I'd never even heard of.

Here are the top 20 results of the survey. Let's see what the good people of Temple are craving!
