Resilience – Bilateral Arm Transplant Story

For Will, what began as a leg infection developed into septic shock. Ultimately, all four of his limbs had to be amputated to save his life. Years later, a team of plastic surgeons performed a bilateral arm transplantation, giving Will greater independence. Now he can better care for himself and navigate the world around him.
