INTERNATIONAL: Man receives first penis transplant in United States

penis_transplantNEW YORK DAILY NEWS – A cancer patient has received the first penis transplant in the United States, a Boston hospital said Monday.

Massachusetts General Hospital has confirmed that Thomas Manning of Halifax, Massachusetts, received the transplanted penis in a 15-hour procedure last week. The organ was transplanted from a deceased donor.

The New York Times first reported the transplant Monday.

Dr. Curtis Cetrulo, who helped lead the surgical team, tells the newspaper that normal urination should be possible for the 64-year-old Manning in a few weeks, with sexual function possible in weeks to months.

“We’re cautiously optimistic,” said Cetrulo, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon, adding that “it’s uncharted waters for us.”
