Hand Transplant Clinic
UT Southwestern Medical Center’s Reconstructive Transplant program offers an innovative operation for those who have suffered the loss of their hand(s).
Who We Are
We evaluate below-elbow amputees for possible hand transplantation and provide multidisciplinary education and insight. The program is a collaborative effort that joins the surgical, medical, and rehabilitative services to provide state-of-the-art reconstruction and transplant care.
Our staff includes:
- Hand transplant surgeon
- Transplant coordinator
- Transplant dietitian
- Transplant financial coordinator
- Transplant infectious disease specialist
- Transplant nephrologist
- Transplant pharmacist
- Transplant social worker
- Transplant surgeon
Clinic staff also includes registered nurses, medical office assistants, and clinic schedulers.
We are dedicated to restoring critical hand functions and regaining the important sense of touch – something that a prosthetic cannot provide.
We provide transplant recipients with medical, financial, and psychosocial information, and offer post-transplant care.
