I come from a VERY conservative part of the USA & had a VERY conservative religious upbringing. I understand & appreciate how shocking some of our procedures appear -- such as this video. And I know Gender Identity Disorder is very MISunderstood. For example, lots of people do not understand transsexual is not homosexual. So I try to inform the best I can. Dr Perovic & Dr Djinovic have helped me improve my tolerance & empathy for people who have terrible health problems I do not. -- Richard
Nice to hear from our patients, colleagues & friends in Turkey, Halil! As a layman filming surgery in multiple operating theaters in Belgrade for months, NONE of which BELONG TO Sava Perovic Foundation, I have great respect for their standards of hygiene, multiple, overlapping & redundant protocols to prevent & protect against infection + fanatical preservation of the "sterile field" in the operating room. Result: ultimate quality surgical results, extremely low surgical complication rates. - RR
Thanks for the question, LA LAA. Orgasm & erotic sensation is provided by the clitoral nerves which are preserved & strategically located during surgery for maximum ease of stimulation & accessibility. Donor tissue nerves are preserved & moved with the entire vascular system to create the neophallus which eventually becomes a working penis that develops TACTILE sensation gradually, over time, inching up the penis. Orgasmic ability before surgery will be the same after phalloplasty -- Richard
Your feedback is appreciated, HRVAT1975. Professor Perovic sacrificed so much to create, preserve and pass on this remarkable philosophy and Mixed Medical Art (MMA) which bridges urogenital surgery, plastic surgery, reconstructive surgery, andrology, urology, pediatrics, geriatrics, gynecology and more. The Sava Perovic Surgical Team performs more than 70 complex and challenging procedures that solve some of the toughest health problems. -- Richard
It's surprising you don't attribute this procedure to professor of urology and surgery Sava Perovic, Head of the Urology Department of the University of Belgrade's Children's Hospital for many, many years until he passed away in 2010 and his pioneering work moved to the Sava Perovic Foundation. This procedure has been tremendously advanced and improved since this very old video. Urogenital reconstructive surgery advances tremendously in a very short time. This is ancient history.
