A 16-year-old hermaphrodite has benefited from a free corrective surgery by health professionals from Apridec Medical Outreach Group (AMOG) in collaboration with the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) school of medical sciences in the Upper West Region.

The 16-year-old, prior to the surgery, was asked to make a decision about his preferred choice of sex, to which he agreed to remain a man, Accra-based Joy FM reported.

The medical team took some three hours to complete the reconstructive surgery.
