Doctors at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore just announced that last month, they successfully completed the world’s first TOTAL genitalia replacement. That means they gave a guy a brand new penis AND scrotum . . . and they both WORK.
The patient is a veteran who was injured in Afghanistan, so if anyone DESERVED the surgery, it’s him.
The organs came from a donor who passed away, and it took 14 hours to perform the transplant.
According to the head surgeon, they believe the transplant will, quote, “help restore near-normal urinary and sexual functions for this young man” within about six months.
