How is Hand Transplantation performed?

Hand transplantation surgery is a complex procedure that takes anywhere from 18 to 24 hours. Once the donor hand is ready, Dr. Nilesh will begin the surgery by making an incision on the arm. The muscles, tendons, bones, and blood vessels of the donor hand are then attached to the corresponding structures in the patient’s arm. The nerves are also connected, which will allow the patient to eventually regain sensation in the transplanted hand. After the surgery is complete, the patient’s hand will be placed in a splint and the patient will need to wear it for 6-8 weeks.

What is the recovery like after Hand Transplantation?

The recovery process after hand transplantation surgery is long and requires a lot of physical therapy. Most patients will stay in the hospital for 2-3 weeks after surgery. During this time, Dr. Nilesh will monitor the patient’s progress and make sure that the transplant is healing properly. The patient will then be discharged from the hospital and will need to continue physical therapy.
