Innovative Penis Transplants Are Offering Hope To Injured Soldiers

In recent years, human organ/tissue transplants have come leaps and bounds. From life-saving heart transplants, to absolutely unbelievable face transplants, our ever-evolving medical industry appears to be entering the sci-fi realm.

One group of people can find great solitude in these life-changing transplants are the men and women who return from fighting wars with severe and devastating injuries.

We have all seen the horrific and poignant images of male soldiers who have lost their legs from the waist down and felt great sorrow. However, I can honestly never say that I've never even considered what damage had been done to the genitals.

Maybe that's because it's not as visually clear as the loss of an arm or a leg, or maybe is simply out of respect, but genitourinary injuries are often not spoken of.

Sex is an important part of any loving relationship, and if an injury has caused a male soldier to lose his penis, then this can have extremely negative effects on his mentality and can create a difficult strain between his partner. 

It's not selfish or inconsiderate, it's simply human nature.
