Nine other women have joined the lawsuit against a Kentucky surgeon who allegedly branded UK on the uteruses. One of the claimants is a former nurse of the surgeon.
The women claim that the markings are unnecessary and degrading. The surgeon, Dr. Guiler claims markings are typically used to maintain orientation during surgery.
As was the case for the first plaintiff, these women discovered the branding when watching the video of their operations provided by Dr. Guiler. http://www.wpmi.com/Global/story.asp?S=1141154
