South African doctors perform second successful penis transplant
Stellenbosch University's faculty of medicine and health sciences has performed a second successful penile transplant at the Tygerberg Academic Hospital.
The 40 year old recipient had been without a male organ for 17 years due to complications from a traditional circumcision.
The organ will be tattooed at a later date to match the recipient's natural skin colour.
