Recipient of first ‘Penis’ transplant is now an expecting father!  

The unidentified South African recipient received the Organ last December 2014. The man underwent a 9-hour operation at the Stellenbosch University and Tygerberg hospital in Cape Town. The 22-year-old man is only 1 of the 250 South Africans who loses their penises in botched traditional circumcisions each year.

The man was already sexually active 5 weeks after the said surgery. And as a result, he recently announced that his girlfriend is already 4 months pregnant, resulting just 2 months after the surgery. Each year, hundreds of young South African men, mainly from the Xhosa tribe, lose their penises after coming-of-age rituals go wrong. Announcing the success of the operation the medical team said that the procedure could eventually be offered to men who have lost their penis to cancer and can even be a last resort to severe erectile dysfunctions.

The doctor who led the surgical team, Andre Van der Merwe, has already been receiving requests of penis transplants from the U.S., Colombia and as far as Russia. "I do believe we will transplant again before the end of the year," he said.
