Months after a man in the United States received the world’s first full face and double hand transplant, doctors are only now calling it a success.

Joe DiMeo was 20 years old when his life changed, for the first time. After surviving a car accident, he was left with burns to 80 percent of his body and the skin on his hands and face had melted.

After finally finding a donor last August, doctors attempted what had never been successfully done before – giving someone a new face and two new hands.

Al Jazeera’s Leah Harding has the story.

    these operations i am against. the patients will suffer by being guinea pigs. who knows how long they will survive. it is not worth it

    • Avatar Serenity says:

      @s clad What if the patient is willing to go through with the procedure, pay for it, and improve his appearance to live more of a normal life and recover? Should we let him suffer instead?

    • Avatar s clad says:

      @Serenity no, free will. however experimetns like those are dangerous

    • Avatar Ok Ok says:

      So basically people will get kidnapped more and get here faces and hands cut off

      @Strong Muslim True and science is slowly copying the creator.

      Still, it’s all amazing since it take more effort for us to do something nature does easy.

    Glad that these medical procedures and ability to recover from harsh conditions are available. Medicine and healthcare these days is so incredibly advanced compared to just a couple of decades ago. Lots of pain and misfortune can be mitigated.

      Also can’t you just be happy for someone. It’s amazing

    • Avatar John f Kennedy says:

      @Tom happy for her sending a private msg to the NHS and it’s criminal network..

    • Avatar Tom says:

      It’s a male nor a female so it’s him not a her. I am still so Confused. I think you should seek help. Maybe try going to see your local NHS GP and getting some help. Take care

    This procedure is going to be too expensive for ordinary people..

    • Avatar Realm 122 says:

      It’s in development of course it would be, only specialists with an incredible amount of work and time can do it

    • Avatar Jacob Johnson says:

      America

    • Avatar Tanveer khan says:

      Oh my god! Is America so developed in medical science!!!

    • Avatar Zed - Orc says:

      @Tanveer khan it can be, can

    • Avatar blob blob says:

      @Tanveer khan but everything is insurance
      The normal people don’t enjoy this far devoloped medical science
      That’s the perk of imperialism

  21. Avatar Ruther Zheng says:

    Although the healthcare system in USA needs improvement, its healthcare quality is undeniably better…

    • Avatar Coffee Bucket says:

      Naah, more expensive yes.
      Better ? I disagree. The USA condition in current pandemic show they are not that superior.
      Yes, they have the special case like the news show above.
      If you say, some of their doctor are the best in the world, I would agree, because it is an individual achievement.
      But the achievements pale in comparison in the face of 450 thousands death (still rising).
      better healthcare quality ? lol. Well, to be fair, I guess yes compared to some country in Africa.

    • Avatar Ruther Zheng says:

      @Coffee Bucket Well, it depends how the media portrays. When Facebook was invented, the media will not say “An American entrepreneur invented Facebook”. But when some guy in the USA starts shooting people om the streets, they will say “Mentally challenged American teen shoots 10 people”. This is the biasness against the USA.

    • Avatar Coffee Bucket says:

      @Ruther Zheng It is not just about how media portray it. It also about how people want to portray it. Ex, Al-Jazeera reported that USA succeed in first full face and double hand transplant. And then BAM, someone conclude that this mean USA healthcare quality is UNDENIABLY better…
      I have to disagree.

    • Avatar Ruther Zheng says:

      @Coffee Bucket uh no, Al Jazeera didnt mention USA, and tbh, I don’t care about the “mean” healthcare quality, what I care about is is there the BEST healthcare quality in the country, and I will buy health insurance for that kind of healthcare.

    I am happy for this breakthrough in science.
    However, it is interesting how we marvel and attach more importance to science for fixing part of what GOD created from nothing.
    Alhamdulillah God gave us intelligence to use science and for that we should be thankful to HIM.

    That said l congratulate the Doctors for the job well done and wish their patient complete recovery

      Is it logical to assume that “YOUR SPECIFIC” God exist ?

      😂😂😂 actually who is God ??
      U should come out that extremism

    • Avatar Imran Akatukunda says:

      @Adjective The only extremist here is you.
      Why take offence simply because someone talked about God with modest language.
      The speed with which the word ‘extremism ‘ comes out of you is so natural that ONLY an extremist can manage to to that.

    • Avatar Imran Akatukunda says:

      @// w1z4rd // GOD is GOD.
      There’s ONLY ONE GOD.
      THE CREATOR OF EVERYTHING.
      But l can understand if you choose not to believe. That is your choice that you shall account for on the Day we shall all meet God

  30. Avatar J LOCKZ says:

    Man that’s impressive! The skill of doctors these days is mind boggling. Also it’s weird to think that one day we will be designing faces that we could put on if we wanted to.

    Just imagine that even with this one science did only understood about 5% of our body, there are many complex things that they work with without even knowing it, for example cells they know it but don’t really know it, because our technology is still too weak to understand it fully

      Organ donors are usually those that are on the brink of death. There’s a long waitlist and whenever a registered organ donor is dying they pull a match from the waitlist for the transplant.
