Total amputation of the penis


Total amputation of the penis is performed on all parts of the penis in order to remove any sort of abnormal growth, that may be a result of cancerous or giant viral warts. In this procedure, there exists a possibility where a part of the penis is preserved and then covered with a surrounding skin or graft skin extracted from other parts. In the procedure of total amputation of the penis, the urethra is brought out on the skin behind the Scrotum that requires the patient to drain the urine in a sitting position. If the above-mentioned way is not possible, a catheter is placed in the bladder through the abdominal wall, that is termed as a suprapubic catheter.
