The story of how a penis was transplanted into a man’s arm, the story of a woman’s transplant into her arm, and how a man was given a penis that was almost as large as his own body are among the many fascinating, life-changing, and heartbreaking stories in the book, “The Life of an Anatomical Penis.”
Written by a doctor and published by the American Journal of Human Biology, the book is an in-depth look at the medical history of men’s organs, and is a rare look at how the body’s organs were made.
“We’re not talking about a man who had a big organ in his hand,” says Dr. James Panksepp, an associate professor at the University of Texas Medical Branch and the author of “The Anatomical Man.”
“We have the hand that was there from birth, and the hand we have now.
And we can’t tell it apart because of all the different organs that were involved.”
The book also includes the stories of the three doctors who performed the procedure.
They were all men.
The first doctor was James A. Hulsey, who died in 1962 at the age of 79.
He was the first surgeon to transplant a human organ from a patient’s body into a new organ.
The second doctor was Arthur E. Schulz, who performed a successful procedure in 1963.
The third doctor was Dr. Thomas A. Smith, who was the only one to survive the operation, and became a legend as the man who performed one of the first successful transplants.
“You could see how much he was fascinated with this new organ,” says Pankss, who has worked in the field of organ transplantation for over 40 years.
“He’d say, ‘I want to be able to have this one.'”
Panksons wife was the daughter of anesthesiologist Dr. Arthur Schulz and anesthesiologists Dr. Henry H. Schulze and Dr. Charles L. Mazzone.
The Schulzes, who owned a hospital, also operated on several other patients.
The doctors worked for the hospital from 1946 to 1958.
They took over operations for the Schulzes when they died.
“It was the largest and most expensive operation ever done,” says Hulsie, a professor of surgery at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
“They had the highest level of equipment.
They had the largest capacity in the world.”
A doctor’s hand was in a jar.
HULSEY The Schulzes were all of the highest-level surgeons in the country, and they were all doctors.
It was a privilege to have a large, healthy hand.
The operation was performed by Dr. William E. Stapley, a doctor of surgery in Boston who had worked in New York City as a cardiologist.
“I have a picture of my wife standing over me, and she says, ‘Dr. Schulu, how did you do it?’ and I say, I’m not sure.
I can’t even describe what I did,” Hulseys wife says.
“Then she says ‘Your hand is in a bucket.’
And I said, ‘What’s in a box?
Your hand is your own hand.
You are the hand.'”
The second Schulz was William A. Stanchfield, a surgeon at the Harvard Medical School and a professor at Boston University.
“Dr. St.anchfield was the second surgeon to do the transplant, and he was very successful,” Hulsie says.
The surgery was performed in 1962 by Drs.
Robert G. Lippert and Harold C. Rader, and both were renowned in their field.
“Both of them were very skilled surgeons, very knowledgeable surgeons,” HULSIE says.
One of the doctors who had the most experience in the surgery was Drs Michael P. Dye and John Dye, both of whom worked as surgical directors at the hospital.
“The whole procedure was in their books,” Huliys wife said.
“That was a huge honor to be one of their surgeons.
But we could see that there was some difficulty in the beginning.
You couldn’t really get any kind of tissue from the skin and so on to get the tissue that was going to make the organ.
So you needed to be very careful in that.”
HULSHE The first transplant was done on a male patient.
“This patient was one of my friends,” says Stanchfields wife, “and we had all the information on this patient.”
“It took us a while to get this transplant, but when we got it, it was so successful that we had to wait for a year and a half before we could transplant it,” Huling says.
But the second transplant was so effective, that it was not a problem.
“All three of the surgeons were very good, and so we did the transplant on a patient of my acquaintance who had been a resident in Boston for a couple of years,” Hull
