State's First Hand Transplant Program Launched In Springfield


As many as three people could receive transplanted hands in the first year of a new program now underway through the SIU School of Medicine. 

 

It becomes the first certified hand transplant program in the state of Illinois.  SIU professor Dr. Michael Neumeister says a transplanted hand is often more effective… and less expensive… than a prosthesis. 

 

A $2.8 million grant from the Memorial Medical Center Foundation will pay for most of the costs of the procedure for up to five patients over the next three years.
