Penis Transplant A Raging Success For South African Surgeons

Recommended Posts

South African doctors have performed the world's first successful penis transplant, three months after the ground-breaking operation.

 

The 21-year-old patient had his penis amputated three years ago after a botched circumcision at a traditional initiation ceremony.

 

In a nine-hour operation at the Tygerberg Hospital in Cape Town, he received his new penis from a deceased donor, whose family were praised by doctors.

 

"We've proved that it can be done - we can give someone an organ that is just as good as the one that he had," said Professor Frank Graewe, head of plastic reconstructive surgery at Stellenbosch University.

 

"It was a privilege to be part of this first successful penis transplant in the world."

 

Doctors say the man, whose identity has not been disclosed, has made a full recovery since the operation on December 11 and had regained all his urinary and reproductive functions.

 

In 2006, a Chinese man had a penis transplant but his doctors removed the organ after two weeks due to "a severe psychological problem of the recipient and his wife".

South Africans started with heart transplants decades ago, but only just now seem to have figured out where the real money is... How long til we get to horse cock transplants to humans, I wonder?
