Hand transplantation at Mayo Clinic

Mayo Clinic Hand and Face Transplant Program surgical director Steven L. Moran, M.D., gives an overview of hand transplantation at Mayo Clinic. Hand transplantation is within the spectrum of reconstruction services offered at Mayo Clinic for those who had suffered one-sided or both-sided devastating hand injuries. A multidisciplinary group of Mayo Clinic experts perform evaluations to determine which option is best for each individual. The Mayo Clinic program is the first in the U.S. to offer hand transplantation as part of the regular evaluation, not an experimental protocol, for people with significant hand injuries.
