Face Transplant Recipient Speaks

Amazing what modern medicine can do today. You will see more of these in the future.

The United States’ first full face transplant recipient is scheduled to leave a Boston hospital on Monday, about two months after the 15-hour procedure.

Dallas Wiens, of Fort Worth, Texas, received the transplant in mid-March, more than two years after he was injured by a high-voltage line. The forehead, nasal structure, nose, lips, facial skin and underlying muscles and nerves were transplanted.

Doctors were not able to restore Wiens’ sight.

Wiens is the second person in the world to receive a full face transplant. The first such transplant happened in Spain last year.

Wiens is scheduled to speak at a press conference at 11 a.m. which will be available on a live webcast.
