Hand Transplantation at Mayo Clinic


Mayo Clinic Hand and Face Transplant Program Surgical Director Steven 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 have 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 patient. 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 patients with significant hand injuries.
