Medical history was made 10 years ago, when a team of surgeons performed the first hand transplant in the U.S on January 25, 1999. The procedure, also called composite tissue allotransplantation, has continued to lead to other innovative surgeries. Jewish Hospital in Louisville Kentucky is the only center in the United States to perform the hand transplantation procedure.
