Dr. Subramania Iyer K., Head of Department, Head & Neck Surgery, Amrita School of Medicine, Kochi, said, "Unlike other solid organ transplants such as kidney, heart and liver, a hand transplant is not considered essential, but it affects a person's quality of life in a big way.

It is a lifelong process".
