There has been a class action lawsuit filed on behalf of all former patients against Dr. Elist, and the claims and issues surrounding the Penuma.

There is also a New York Times reporter currently writing an article on the filing, the background and what has led up to this.

There are potentially multiple lawsuits to follow, representing patients individually for their pain and suffering.

These are the names of the lawyers to contact for participating in the class action and reimbursement as well as the mass-tort lawsuit against Elist:

John Scofield or Amy Tabor with:
CADDELL & CHAPMAN
628 East 9th Street
Houston TX 77007
Phone: 713-751-0400

Class action lawsuit filed against Elist, Penuma 5 months 4 weeks ago #1308706250

I had someone who frequents the Penuma sub-Reddit private message me that not only have the Moderators there locked any lawsuit related topics, but have already issued bans for members who presumably made mention of the lawsuit and/or this website (since PhalloBoards contains a plethora of authentic negative reviews of the rigid silicone implant).

I implore anyone who has been wronged or provided a poor result as it relates to the implant procedure to create an account here: www.reddit.com/r/penuma/ and express your grievances! It will likely get censored but you will have helped many men on the fence who are contemplating something known to cost $20,000 at the expense of length, sensation, etc. If you have pictures, post them as well so that you aren't regarded as a "competitor" like the Moderators there like to allege. It's really sickening to be honest.

I decided to touch up on some of the posts there (I usually visit the place once or so a month) and I'm surprised they let some negative reviews hang around. This is probably because they learned their lesson the first time they employed a forum many years ago, where it was censorship & deletion all the time.

I read a post of one guy who has had 6 months of numbness and his doctor's recommendation was to remove it and replace it with a large "upgrade". The numbness has yet to go away. Other negative reviews included loss of length (and we're not talking 0.25" but rather 2 whole inches), psychological stress due to the amount of time it takes to recover without guarantee, etc.

I'm no conspiracy theorist but how the Board of Medicine in California only provides "slaps on the wrists" wreaks of corruption to me. Incompetence at best. They owe it to the public (consumers & patients) to redeem their ill discretions.

Like what in the actual $%*& ??

By the way, I'm really proud of the Class Action's language. I feel before past Attorney's didn't really get the gist of what made the implant notorious and deceitful, let alone dangerous, and the wording in this new document paints it out in a very straight forward way, not jumbled up with legalese or technical jargon- just exactly how it is.

What blows my mind is that all Dr. Elist had to do is admit his implant was flawed, apologize and volunteer to aid in any recovery of past botcheries, and move into more successful and ethical options like Girth injections (example: Hyaluronic Acid). Why doesn't he? Because the most anyone's charging for HA in the U.S. is like $7,000, but most reports on the Penuma reddit say guys are looking at somewhere between $17k-$20k ... AND Dr. Elist now leases out this "Penuma" patent to a variety of Doctors around the country, which I'm sure he must make some kind of commission off of. In the end, greed and malice (him knowingly installing a flawed device through deceitful marketing like the FDA pitch) is why he chooses to do what he still does.

I don't wish him harm nor should anyone, but we should all hope for justice.

This is the just the first of the planned lawsuits against Elist and Penuma. I implore everyone to get the word out. We NEED patients/former patients to assist us in contacting other former patients, providing their experiences, testifying, and speaking with the urologists that have been duped into implanting these on behalf of Elist. Yes, he is trying to basically franchise or license this out, and he is trying to get ahead of the legal wave by trying to get as much income in the door as possible. It's an ethical ponzi scheme, in my opinion.

If you have been a patient or know of a former patient, PLEASE REACH OUT.

Here are the names of the lawyers that we people should contact for participating in the class action lawsuit against Elist:

John Scofield or Amy Tabor with:
CADDELL & CHAPMAN
628 East 9th Street
Houston TX 77007
Phone: 713-751-0400

If I was in the shoes of someone that experienced some of the trauma alleged and wanted to be part of a class action, I'd make one stern recommendation: keep posting on the Penuma subreddit: www.reddit.com/r/penuma/ . Too many men there are unaware of the lawsuit(s), this and other websites that detail former accounts of implant removal & damage, etc. Even if your post is removed and your account banned, you may have at least recruited a handful of new people for all you know.

My hunch is that this will be settled out of court so that Dr. Elist can continue to practice because somehow he's evaded the Board of Medicine AND the Justice System for over a decade employing the most notorious male enhancement known to Urology/phalloplasty.

Hello Everyone

I am also a patient of Dr Elist and the penuma procdeure. Really wish I had found these forums before. As I also suffer from many of the issues you all are stating. I can't believe there is almost no mention of dissatisfied patient reviews on sites like Google, Yelp and some of the other larger websites.

Anyhow, I wanted to let you know that I just spoke to Amy at CADDELL & CHAPMAN. Unfortunately it looks like the lawsuit that is being referred to on this post has been pulled. The individual has decided not to move forward. However, they are continuing to build a case to go after Dr Elist. I gave them the short version of my story and contact information. Hopefully a new case can be brought up soon! I do encourage anyone who hasn't, to please contact their office. The only way we can win this is by working together and by numbers. We can not win this individually.

There won't be any mention because they redirect all of that $$ from duping people into a juggernaut of a marketing campaign. Just wait until some news articles hit

EVERYONE NEEDS TO CALL THE ATTORNEYS AT CADDELL CHAPMAN. They are in charge of the class action suit against Elist, Penuma.
Amy Tabor or John Scofield
Caddell & Chapman
713-751-0040

This is a necessity. Instead of waiting for you to be fixed, or worrying about things, you have to WORK, and MAKE A MOVE and contact them. Let them know your story. If you know of others that have been duped, bamboozled, lied to, bought into the claims of Elist, Taj, and others re: Penuma, then do them and yourself a favor and contact these attorneys. They're not asking me to put this info here--I'm doing this for our collective benefit.
