KNH Surgeons successfully reattach boy’s severed PENIS in seven hour operation-a first in Kenya.

Thursday, January 31, 2019- Surgeons at the Kenyatta National Hospital have successfully reattached the severed penis of 16-year old boy.

The procedure that took seven hours involved a team of 15 multidisciplinary specialists led by Prof Stanely Khainga.

This is the first time an operation of this kind was successfully carried out on Kenyan soil.

Speaking during a press conference at the institution on Wednesday, Mr Khainga said the teen was referred to the hospital after he was violently mutilated.
The Form Three boy, only known as A.M. for reasons of protecting his privacy, was attacked by unknown assailants on the night of December 18, 2018, at around 1 a.m.
The chopped organ had been stored in a hospital where the boy was first admitted.
“We received the case as a referral from one of the county hospitals at around 9 a.m. on December 19, 2018. His penis had been amputated at the base using a kitchen knife,” said Prof Khainga.
“After initial examination and resuscitation, we immediately prepared him for theatre where we began the process of re-implantation of the penis,” Prof Khainga added.
The boy has regained full use of the organ and will now be able to urinate and engage in sexual gratification again.
“He has done well and is reporting erections with adequate length. His wounds have also healed,” he said.
The patient is due for discharge in two weeks.
