US Doctors Succeed In Providing Man with a New Lease of Life

It’s bizarre news! Doctors in the US have been successfully able to provide a man with a new life. The most extensive facial transplant ever accomplished has made this man stand out with others in the society.

For the past 15 years Richard Lee Norris has had to live a life away from others in isolation. The reason being the stern injuries that he was carrying on his face. The injuries were a result of a fatal gun accident. Since then he wore masks and a prosthetic nose to cover up the injuries. Simultaneously, he even underwent several surgeries to overcome the problem. But despair, none of the surgeries worked out for him.

However, a 10 years research worked out for him. The research was funded by the Department of Defence's Office of Naval Research. Mr. Norris, 37, was operated upon at the University of Maryland's Medical Centre and the operation took a total of 36 hours to be accomplished. He had been donated a new face from an anonymous donor.

The American man with the help of this surgery has been able to get a new face, teeth, tongue and jaw. He is recovering and was able to open his eyes by the third day of the operation.

The Transplant Team stated Mr. Norris is very pleased with the operation and looking forward towards life with a new zeal. He affirmed that Norris had already started carrying out shaving and brushing his teeth.

The successful achievement of the very first full face transplant has raised the hopes amongst the doctors to a high point. The Dean of the University's School of Medicine, Dr. E. Albert Reece, said, “It's also an unprecedented and historic procedure that we believe will change, if you will, the face of medicine now and in the future”. It is being expected that it will be used to operate military patients too who were wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.
