Johns Hopkins Performs Double Arm Transplant Little Over A Month Ago and Has Movement in One Arm So Far

Posted Jan 30 2013 12:55am

This is great as he lost all four limbs and served the country and was hurt in Iraq.  It was just done a little over a month ago and he already has some movement with the one arm.  Poor guy doesn’t have legs either so this is big for him.  BD 


Twenty-six-year-old Brendan Marrocco was the first soldier to survive losing all four limbs in the Iraq War, and doctors revealed Monday that he received a double-arm transplant on Dec. 18 at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.
