Indore: Despite of all odds, the doctors of M Hospital once again added a feather in their cap by performing a complex microsurgical penile re- implantation, i. e. fixing the genital, on Wednesday. The doctors also claimed that this type of surgery has been performed for the first time in the city.
According to information, a 35- year- old man, a resident of Harsola, reached at M Hospital after cutting his private part following a family dispute on Wednesday night.Senior plastic surgeon Dr Sachin Verma said that they didn’t know the history of the patient and not even had any information about the exact time of the incident.
It was believed that the patient is mentally ill.“ In a four- hour surgery, we minutely fix the blood vessels, veins, urethra and stimulation nerves of the organ. The patient will be able to pass urine but the chances of retrieving erection and copulation function is very less,” he said.
Dr Verma further added that any organ could be revived if the surgery is performed in six hours but in this case as they don’t know the case history, they will be able to say anything after a couple of days.Spokesperson of M Hospital Dr Sudarshan Oriya said it is for the first time such surgery is performed in a government hospital in the state.
