​About Us

The Hand and Upper Extremity Transplant Program offers a new and unique service to patients at UHN. We perform upper limb transplants for suitable patients.

Our surgeons are internationally known for treating complex hand, wrist and arm injuries, and are trained and experienced in all areas of transplant surgery.

Transplantation may be recommended for patients who are in good health, but have not been able to adapt to prosthetics, after one or both upper limbs were amputated. Patients can expect some level of function from the new limb, and will be able to perform daily tasks.
