Doctors Rebuild Man’s Penis

Scientists have completed a miraculous surgery attaching a bionic penis to a man. The man was the victim of an auto accident where his penis was ripped from his body. But now medical science has allowed him to have an 8 inch bionic penis implanted. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian (The Point) hosts of The Young Turks discuss.

Is this a huge step for medical science? Let us know in the comments below.

“A man in the United Kingdom recently made headlines when he had surgery to get a so-called “bionic penis.” But experts say the man actually received a penile implant — a relatively common device typically used to treat men with erectile dysfunction.

The man, a 43-year-old from Edinburgh named Mohammed Abad, was hit by a car when he was 6 years old, and lost his penis and one testicle as a result of the accident, according to the Daily Mail. Over the last three years, Abad has undergone a number of operations to place a replacement penis on his body, which can become erect with a push of a button.”
