Sexuality is Part of Being Human – Extreme Interventions to Maintain Sexual Functioning

Sexual health and wellness is a basic human need that many take for granted.  Certain conditions require novel interventions to remediate. From the outside some of these measures might seem extreme, but the willingness of patients to undergo intensive procedures in order to realize and/or maintain their sexuality speaks to how intrinsic sexuality is to our human experience. During this session, Dr. Dicken Ko, a pioneering surgeon in urology and transplantation, will give the perspectives of his first US penis transplant experience that continues to be successful since 2015.
