Burned private part of MP man restored after 8 hours of surgery

VADODARA: He was only nine years old when an electric shock from an 11 kV line left multiple burns on his body and his penis also burned. In the small village of the district of Badwani, in Madhya Pradesh, where he grew up, Ramesh (name changed) avoided urinating in the public school where he studied and used to cry only when the townspeople called him kinnar.

With age, even his parents were still stressed about how this otherwise muscular man would settle into his life. But life has become more livable for Ramesh, now 25, with his penis rebuilt after an eight-hour surgery. We rebuild your penis from the tissues of your hand through the microvascular reconstruction of the penis. We took a flap of tissue from his forearm and tube-tube technique and reconstructed the penis, said plastic surgeon Dr. Saumya Nayak. Three blood vessels that included an artery and two veins were joined to restore sensation. This was done through surgery, he said.

As your sensation recovers, the patient will be discharged soon. After a year and a half, the second stage surgery will be performed to insert the implant. This will restore the function of almost 100% for the patient, he said.

For me, it is nothing less than a miracle. As a child, I remained constantly depressed, since I could not stand like other children and urinate. If I tried, I would wet my clothes. Even doing daily activities was a great shame, said Ramesh, who works as a government official in the civic body of the neighboring state.
