Surgical repair of the clitoris after ritual genital mutilation: results on 453 cases

Pierre Foldès MD

Ritual genital mutilation is responsible for psycho sexual sequelae including dyspareunia, and deprivation of feminine identity. Some women seek for rehabilitation through surgical repair of the clitoris. We present the results of the procedure we developed for this repair.  Between 1992 and 2005, patients presenting for repair of the clitoris were included in this study. Preoperative assessment recorded existence of pain and description of clitoral sensations.
