4. First penis transplants in the U.S. to benefit veterans
Johns Hopkins University will soon perform the first penis transplants in the U.S. to wounded soldiers. The first of the 60 planned surgeries could happen in just a few months. "Some hope to father children. I think that is a realistic goal," Dr. W.P. Andrew Lee, the chairman of plastic and reconstructive surgery at Johns Hopkins, said in an interview with The New York Times. A young soldier who had a horrific injury from a bomb blast in Afghanistan is the first candidate, and the organ will come from a deceased donor. Doctors are hopeful about the success of the transplant. The procedure has been successfully done in South Africa, and that patient recently became father. (nytimes.com)
