When conventional plastic and reconstructive surgery is not enough, there’s reconstructive transplantation.
Potential patients are those who have suffered massive loss of complex tissue, including:
- Abdominal walls.
Reconstructive transplantation offers the possibility of restoring natural function to patients, allowing them to regain daily living independence.
Patients interested in being considered for reconstructive transplantation at Cleveland Clinic are carefully screened for psychological health, family support, understanding of complications and medication compliance.
Cleveland Clinic has the most comprehensive reconstructive transplant team in the world.
