Hand Transplantation Expert to Speak November 17

On Thursday, November 17, Emory's pioneering hand transplantation surgeon Dr. Linda Cendales 12G will address guests at the Faculty Within Your Reach program at Emory Midtown Hospital.

In her Emory Magazine article "My Left Hand," author Mary J. Loftus writes:

Cendales, the only surgeon in the US with formal training in both hand microsurgery and transplantation, says many potential transplant patients contact her directly. “Everyone has different circumstances, and every email is a personal email, so I individualize each email back,” she says. “It’s one of the great privileges I have.”

That privilege led Dr. Cendales to successfully transplant the left hand of Orlando college student Linda Lu in a groundbreaking surgery.
