Craniomaxillofacial Allotransplantation (Face Transplant)

Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to see if an investigational surgery that transfers tissue from a non-living donor to living individual will help restore greater function, appearance, and sensation to the head and neck areas of individuals who have suffered traumatic injury to the face. This procedure is called a craniomaxillofacial allotransplantation or “face transplant”. This study will also collect data on how patients do during and after having a facial transplant from a non- living donor. Your recovery and outcomes will be observed through clinical exams, x-rays, blood and tissue tests, and other associated evaluations at all follow up visits.
