First Successful Penis Transplant In The United States
The first penis transplant in the United States just occurred a few days ago and the recipient, Thomas Manning, 64, is doing well after the 15-hour surgery. Worldwide, there have only been two other penis transplants: a failed one in China in 2006 and a successful one in South Africa in 2014. The procedure done in China was a success but the recipient and his wife suffered psychological trauma and decided to have the surgery reversed 15 days later. The 21 year-old man who had the penis transplant done in South Africa did well with the procedure and was able to successfully conceive a child later.
