How does Dr. Perovic incorporate the clitoral nerves to the neophallus during his Total Phalloplasty?
Dr Perovic says: “We don’t incorporate the clitoral nerves into the neophallus but rather the ilioinguinal nerve (rises from the first lumbar nerve, passes through the inguinal canal and superficial inguinal ring to supply the skin of the upper medial thigh, mons pubis, and scrotum or labia majora) in order to provide tactile sensation. We preserve the clitoris and cover it under the skin so the patient can have sexual arousal and orgasm.
