Hand Transplant Research

Although hand transplantation is clearly in the early stages of being considered a standard of care treatment for hand/upper extremity amputation, we sought the oversight of the Springfield Committee for Research Involving Human Subjects at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine to initiate a clinical trial of hand transplantation (IRB protocol # 12-811, final approval 10/17/2013).  We are currently recruiting patients for the SIU Hand Transplant Trial and are studying a number of outcomes.
