Orlando college student Linda Lu shares her experience of becoming the first person in the Southeast, and the 14th in the US, to receive a complete hand transplant. Lu, whose left arm was amputated at the age of 1 due to Kawasaki Disease, underwent the successful 19-hour, two-team operation, led by hand transplant pioneer Dr. Linda Cendales, on March 12, 2011, at Emory University Hospital. Emory's Hand Transplant Program, established in 2007, is led by Cendales, the only doctor in the U.S. with formal training in both hand and transplant surgery.
