Penis Transplant Program

Become Complete After Penile Injury

Reconstructive penis transplant surgery can help men regain their confidence and intimacy after traumatic injury, severe micropenis, congenital absence of the penis, or loss of the penis after surgical treatment for penile cancer.

Our multidisciplinary team provides comprehensive care and treatment for cisgender male patients who qualify as candidates. This procedure is currently not available for transgender men. Learn more about gender affirmation surgery offered at The Johns Hopkins Center for Transgender Health.
