(User Submitted) – A California doctor is being sued for branding his patient’s uterus with her name after removing it. He says he did it as a "friendly gesture," but the 47-year-old patient sees it more like "inexcusably bizarre behavior" and is suing for medical negligence. The good doctor used a cauterizing tool to write "Ingrid" on the uterus when it was out. More details at the Smoking Gun, via App.com. (Read more surgeon stories.)
