Surgeons said Monday they have done the first penis transplant in the U.S., helping a 64-year-old man who lost his organ to cancer. Massachusetts General Hospital planned a news conference later Monday to give details about the transplant, which is only the third recorded penis transplant ever done globally. Thomas Manning gives a thumbs up after being asked how he was feeling following the first penis transplant in the United States, in Boston. Sam Riley / Mass General Hospital via AP "Earlier this month during a 15-hour procedure, surgeons connected the intricate vascular and nerve structures of a donor penis with those of the 64-year-old transplant recipient. The patient continues to recover well," the hospital said in a statement. The New York Times interviewed the patient, who it identified as Thomas Manning, a bank courier from Halifax, Massachusetts.

Now he has a second shot. Surgeons said Manning should be able to easily urinate in weeks, and can have sex soon afterward — though he won't be able to have children, because the operation stopped short of new testes.
There have only been two prior penis transplants reported anywhere in the world — one in China in 2006, which failed, and another in South Africa in 2014, which led to the patient fathering a child.
