"Patients: Doctor left us with deformed penises 45 malpractice claims have been filed September 25, 2006 BY STEVE PATTERSON Staff Reporter The 44-year-old married Chicago man was lured in 2003 by the promise of a longer and thicker penis. Thousands of dollars and multiple surgeries later, the man has something "that doesn't even resemble a penis," said his attorney, Lawrence Griffin. "It's absolutely grotesque." Dozens of Chicago men have the same shrunken deformities, and each alleges Dr. Sheldon Burman was the one who convinced them his surgery could provide them with something that nature did not."

He said he is self-taught in the procedure and has no formal background in urology or plastic surgery."
