Genital removal doctor guilty of grievous bodily harm

A NSW former doctor has been found guilty of maliciously inflicting grievous bodily harm on a patient whose genitals he removed without her consent.

The Sydney jury heard that the doctor - who cannot be named for legal reasons - took the woman's clitoris during the operation, telling a nurse that the patient's husband was dead "so it did not matter anyway".

The doctor denied maliciously inflicting grievous bodily harm (GBH) on Carolyn DeWaegeneire with intent to cause her GBH in 2002.

But late on Thursday afternoon, the NSW District Court jury found him guilty after another jury failed to reach a verdict
