In January, a team of 18 surgeons led by Dr. Steven McCabe completed Canada’s first successful hand transplant at Toronto Western Hospital, continuing a proud tradition of medical firsts at University Health Network (UHN).

“This is a tremendous accomplishment that required the skills and cooperation of specialists from many medical disciplines and a number of organizations,” says Dr. McCabe. “The patient is doing really well and we are excited at the prospect of being able to offer this life-changing procedure to more individuals.”
