Alvin Benton checked into Baltimore Surgical Hospital for a routine hernia repair and woke up 14 hours later to find he had undergone a sex change operation and is now physically a woman.
A team of five surgeons led by Dr. Chopra Wienerhoff performed an unprecedented marathon operation where surgeons completed genital re-purposing as well as breast surgery on the unwitting patient.
Confidential sources at the hospital say shortly after Mr. Benton woke up from surgery there was a disturbance and he started screaming at the hospital staff and doctors when he realized he had become a victim of the medical community's liberal agenda.
Before hospital lawyers could put a muzzle on him, Doctor Wienerhoff spoke to local press defending his teams actions.
"We repaired the hernia, and we've decided not to charge Mr. Benton for any of the surgery, that's like a $150,000 gift to him."
Dr. Wienerhoff further explained when pressed for the reason why they would perform a sex change operation on someone without their consent.
"Because men don't know what they don't know, I mean as far as what women face in their day to day lives when it comes to discrimination and oppression at work, home, and when making healthcare choices. I think we did an excellent job on his sex re-assignment surgery and the other doctors and I hope he will give his sex change a chance."
Some members of the press were stunned by the, "give it a chance" comment, because meanwhile Benton's wife and two children are already undergoing counseling to help them deal with the trauma of the whole ordeal.
When a member of the press asked the doctor if he would undergo sex re-assignment himself so he could gain firsthand knowledge of women's issues he just said, "No way!"
The Benton family is being represented by powerhouse attorneys Chabot Sanders and Beth Cassandro, who are preparing a suit against the doctors and the hospital. Mr. Benton has also been moved to a private medical facility to continue his recovery.
