That's some tuchus, Robin. 'Ghetto booty' diagnosis angers patient; doctor uses term instead of lumbar lordosis Tennessee woman filed complaint after doctor used term 'ghetto booty' to diagnose her back pain. JACKSON, TN - A Tennessee woman is filing a complaint after she said her doctor used an offensive term while giving her a diagnosis. Terry Ragland went to a doctor looking for treatment for her severe lower back pain. Ragland said she was seen by a nurse, then the doctor, who sent her to get an X-ray. When he came back into the exam room, Ragland said the doctor gave her a diagnosis not seen in any medical book. "He said, 'I know what the problem is. It's ghetto booty,' and I said, 'Ghetto what?' He said, 'Ghetto booty,'" Ragland said. "He said, 'There's no cure for it, but I could give you something if you're having pain.'" Ragland said she reported the incident to the office manager, who apologized. A few weeks later, the doctor sent a letter of apology, saying he was trying to tell her that she had lumbar lordosis, a curve in her spine that makes the buttocks protrude more. There is no cure.
