(WDAY TV) - A man in South Dakota is suing the hospital where he was circumcised as a newborn, saying he only recently became aware that he'd undergone the procedure and that is robbed him of his sexual prowess.

28-year-old Dean Cochrun is asking for $1-thousand dollars in punitive damages from Sanford Hospital in Sioux Falls. He claims an unknown doctor at the hospital, then named the Sioux Valley Hospital, led his mother to believe the procedure was medically necessary.

He argues the circumcision was not necessary, unethical and without medical benefit. Cochrun is currently imprisoned in Sioux Falls for kidnapping.
