I'm almost too angry to comment rationally. The video speaks for itself.
It's not complicated.
Let the kid grow up sufficiently so they can tell us what gender they are - and then support them in whatever they decide. Male, female, or something else.
Yes, there may be a cancer risk - in 15 years time. No surgery is needed before that age.
As for this "doctor"? Malpractice. Child Abuse. Sexual Abuse. Strike him from the register, and put him on a list of sex offenders. Confiscate all his assets.
But would it do any good? Well, it would stop a repeat offence, and act as a strong deterrent. And more merciful than another alternative that springs to mind. One involving surgical shears. If it was me though, I'd add that as a punishment, not substitute it.
Now I'm going to have a good, solid cry for this little boy. And try to regain my composure, and try very, very hard to forgive this arrogant, blundering, sadistic fool.
I may be some time doing that. Even when I was 8 years old, I felt very protective of young children.
I wish this were an isolated case. But it's what happens to Intersexed children. Adults too, but somehow it's so much worse when a child is the victim.
