Worlds First Total Penile and Scrotum Transplant | Johns Hopkins Medicine
On March 26, 2018 a team of nine plastic surgeons and two urological surgeons at Johns Hopkins Medicine performed the world’s first total penile and scrotum transplant. In a 14-hour surgery, the entire penis, scrotum (without testicles) and partial abdominal wall of a deceased donor was transplanted to a veteran wounded in Afghanistan. This animation illustrates the transplantation process.

The penile transplant project is considered a clinical trial and is made possible because of contributions from a team of specialists, including psychiatrists, psychologists, urologists, plastic surgeons, anesthesiologists, a nurse transplant coordinator, hematologists, infectious disease specialists, immunosuppressive therapy experts, dermatopathologists and bioethicists.
