QCOSTARICA – Using tissue from an arm, Costa Rican doctors were able to reconstruct a man’s penis after losing most of his male organ in an accident.

According to the statements of the Quepos resident, who requested anonymity, this now gives him a change at leading a normal life, like urinating and having sex with his wife.

Doctors at the Hospital Mexico and Hospital San Juan de Dios said they found the solution, using tissues from the man’s left arm to reconstruct the urethra and penis.

Of course, the man won’t be able to have sex right away, but with the reconstruction of his urethra he is able to urinate standing and, over time, a penile implantwill enable him to have intercourse.

This is the first surgery of its kind in Costa Rica and one of a such few procedures around the world.

“We save the life of the man who is physically well, but had a very listless emotional health. For him it was very important to have his penis functioning. His was very depressed. Since the operation, he and his family indicate that he is feeling better,” said Dr. Carlos Centeno, the plastic surgeon that the lead the reconstructive procedure.

It was back in 2013 while, peeling coconuts, the 35-year-old man in an accident he touched an electric cable with his knife, burning the underside of his body and caused the amputation of both of his legs, as well as much of his penis.
