U-M Health System launches hand transplant program

The U-M Health System launched a new hand transplant program, the first of its kind in Michigan, and is actively seeking adult candidates for this life-altering surgery.

Hand transplantation is part of the U-M Transplant Center’s new vascular composite allograft program, which refers to transplants involving several different kinds of vascularized tissue like skin, muscle and bone.

U-M plans to do a hand transplant first, but this field of transplantation also includes face, abdominal wall and other types of transplants.
