Woman Outraged Because Her Uterus Is Branded

The patient who is suing her doctor for cauterizing the letters UK onto her uterus is calling the act offensive and demeaning. Stephanie Means says the gynecologist should have asked her permission before marking the letters of his alma mater-- the University of Kentucky. Dr. Michael Guiler says he brands the uterus, for the patient's protection. He claims the marking not only helps prevent complications, to have a visual marking during the removal surgery, but also is used during postoperative testing and review.
