First penis transplant USA appears to be a success—Thomas Manning lost his manhood following a battle with penile cancer

Penile cancer took Thomas Manning’s penis, and left him with a 1-inch stump.

In order to save his life, doctors would have to remove most of his manhood, in an operation called a partial penectomy.

He had to sit to urinate, and Intimacy was totally out of the question.

After the amputation, he said, “I wouldn’t go near anybody.”

On May 8th and 9th, doctors affixed a penis from a deceased donor to the 64-year-old bank courier from Halifax, Mass., in a landmark operation that took 15-hours, about a dozen surgeons and 30 other health care workers.

“I want to go back to being who I was,” Mr. Manning said on Friday in an interview in his hospital room.

“We’re cautiously optimistic,” said Dr. Curtis L. Cetrulo, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon and a leader of the surgical team.

“It’s uncharted waters for us.”

The experimental surgery has doctors hopeful that they may help veterans with severe pelvic injuries, as well as cancer patients and accident victims.

Veterans are a major focus of penile transplant surgery in the United States because suicide rates are very high in soldiers with major damage to the genitals and urinary tract,

Dr. Cetrulo explains:

They’re 18- to 20-year-old guys, and they feel they have no hope of intimacy or a sexual life.

They can’t even go to the bathroom standing up.

If all goes as planned, Manning should be able to urinate within a few weeks, and function sexually in weeks to months.

The hospitals, doctors, and staff all donated their time and talents to covert the $50,000 to $75,000.

Both hospitals are paying for the procedures, and the doctors are donating their time.

Two other penis transplants have been reported since the dawn of the surgery.

One in China in 2006, which failed, and a successful one in South Africa in 2014, in which the patient was able to father a child!
