South African Penis Transplant Reciepent Is Going To Be A Dad


The South African man who successfully received a donor penis last year after losing his own from  botched circumcision three years ago is expecting a baby with his 21-year-old girlfriend.
Primitive conditions in the South African bush frequently lead to infection and other
complications during routine, common procedures like a circumcision. The unnamed
patient lost his own penis after it became gangrenous, Van der Merwe said. Some 250
men a year have their penises amputated in South Africa each year.

"This is a very serious situation. For a young man of 18 or 19 years, the loss of his
penis can be deeply traumatic. He doesn't necessarily have the psychological capability
to process this,” Van der Merwe said.
