Operation on Baby Boy to Remove Extra Penis

Baby Artyom G has been successfully operated on after being born with two penises.

British doctors’ at the St Vladimir’s Children Clinical Hospital were stunned when the baby boy was born with the rare condition known as Fetus in Fetu (FIF).

His mother had undergone a perfectly normal pregnancy and no detection of the condition had been noticed before the birth.

After being rushed from his maternity hospital to the specialist clinic in Moscow the baby boy known only as Artyom G, underwent the world’s first robot surgery that lasted for over five hours.

The doctors’ who performed the operation told the Sun newspaper.

"The surgery was complicated. We had to form one penis out of two, make the abdominal wall and create a bladder."

"When our colleagues asked for help we said yes immediately but we couldn't imagine the case would be so complicated."

The operation was a great success and the baby is in good health with his future of a normal life and the ability to have children now ahead of him.

Second Penis on Baby Boy’s Back Removed

The Tianjin Children’s Hospital in central China was met with its first case of Fetus in Fetu last year when a baby boy was born with a second growing out of his back. 

After a three hour operation doctors removed the extra manhood and the baby boy was given a clean bill of health.

Doctors, who spent over three hours removing the extra penis on June 6, said he was fine following the surgery.
