Hand Transplants are a Lifelong Process Says Amrita Doctor

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. For a hand transplant to truly work, the patient will have to 'work', too. Extensive physiotherapy is needed to ensure that the hand works, along with the use of immunosuppressants. It is a lifelong process".
