First successful face and double hand transplant

BBC, 05 Feb 2021
Doctors in New York have performed the world's first successful face and double hand transplant.

Joe DiMeo, 22, underwent the 23-hour surgery, performed by a team of more than 140 healthcare workers last August.

A car crash in 2018 left Mr DiMeo with third-degree burns over 80% of his body. His fingertips were amputated and he lost his lips and eyelids.

Mr DiMeo says the operation has given him a "second chance at life".
