A 64-year-old man who lost his penis to cancer is the nation’s first recipient of a penis transplant. The experimental procedure is poised to help thousands of men who have lost their genitals to disease, accident, or combat.
The organ was received from a deceased donor.
Normal blood flow has been restored, and there are no signs of bleeding, rejection, or infection. If all goes according to plan, Manning should experience normal urination in a few weeks, and sexual function in a few months.
“The entire transplant team has worked tirelessly to ensure that our patient is on the path to recovery, thanks in part to the gift of organ donation.”
