The First Penile Transplant: The Surgeons and Patient Report

October 11, 2018
Waltham Woods Conference Center
Massachusetts Medical Society, 860 Winter Street
Waltham, MA 02451-1411 
Not available

While individuals who have lost their penises to disease or who have suffered genitourinary injuries in combat or through a traumatic event can live without an intact organ, the psychological aspects of such an injury can be overwhelming. Despite the reluctance of the medical establishment to embrace these procedures for medical and ethical reasons, these proof-of-principle cases will help establish the techniques used in this procedure and will forge the path to future treatment of patients with significant pelvic and genitourinary tissue loss related to cancer, trauma or infection. This activity will address the significant knowledge gap in the general medical community about the procedure and this achievement in transplantation and the effect it has on survivors of genital trauma and penile cancer.
