Atlanta, GA (WGCL) — A Metro Atlanta mother is suing a pediatrics center after she said her 11-month-old son’s genitals were damaged during a circumcision.

Stacie Willis told CBS46 that she took her son, Dejuan Williams, to Life Cycle Pediatrics in October 2013 to be circumcised. Williams was 3-weeks-old when he underwent the circumcision.

Willis is accusing certified midwife Melissa Jones of cutting too much of her son’s genitalia.

“I’m angry. I have to think about my kids at the end of the day,” said Willis.

CBS46 reached out to Jones as well as Anne Sigouin, who runs Life Cycle Pediatrics.

CBS46’s phone calls were not returned and our knocks at the homes of both women went unanswered.

Sigouin is also being sued.

“It’s not about the money. It’s about her not being able to do this,” said Willis.

Willis said a doctor was called in to examine her son, who eventually had to be taken to Atlanta Urgent Care where he was referred to a urologist.

The suit states that Jones lacked the necessary professional skill and experience to completely perform a circumcision.

Willis said medical bills have grown to more than $20,000 and could exceed $2 million.

“You stole his teenage years, his adult life,” said Willis.

Willis’ attorney, Jonathan Johnson, said Jones has been served with the lawsuit, but he has not been able to locate Sigouin.
