Penis Transplant

Penis transplantation is a transplant procedure surgically in which a penis is transplanted to a patient. The penis may be an allograft from a human donor or it may be grown artificially, though the latter has not yet been transplanted onto a human.

Dr Van der Merwe and his team has done the first penis transplantation for an African who had penile amputation during traditional ceremony. Even though the transplantation was successful, full sensation has not returned and doctors suggest this could take two years.
