Lumbar Lordosis, or, as medical professionals call it,  Ghetto Booty.
  • Lumbar Lordosis, or, as medical professionals call it, "Ghetto Booty."
Terry Ragland of Jackson, TN filed a complaint with the Tennessee Department of Health following her doctor's diagnosis of her chronic back pain.

From the WREG report:

“I think I blacked out after he said ghetto booty. I think my mind was just stuck on the phrase because I couldn’t believe he said that,” said Ragland.


Dr Sweo explained to WREG that he'd used the term to explain a condition called lumbar lordosis, "a fancy name for the curve of the lower spine that makes the buttocks protrude more."

"In trying to explain that I said that she had ghetto booty and she didn’t like that apparently," Sweo was quoted as saying.
