Coverage of the Wesley Warren Jr. Case
Sometimes a single case garners a lot of attention. Scrotal lymphedema is a rare condition associated with a massive swelling of the skin of the scrotum and tissue between the scrotal skin and the testicles. In severe cases, the size of the scrotum can reach the size of a basketball or larger. When Mr. Wesley Warren developed a scrotum that weighed over 134lbs, he was homeless living in Nevada, and was unable to obtain care locally. Dr. Gelman at the Center for Reconstructive Urology agreed to perform his successful 14 hour surgery for free. We were able to demonstrate that with these most challenging cases, we could obtain a successful result without a major complication.
