A young soldier who four years ago lost his arms and legs to a roadside bomb in Iraq, on Tuesday showed off his two new arms at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, the result of the first successful bilateral arm transplant at the Baltimore medical center.
A soldier who lost all four limbs in a roadside bombing in Iraq says he's looking forward to driving and swimming with new arms after undergoing a double-arm transplant.
Dr. Jaimie Shores, assistant professor of plastic and reconstructive surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, explained that it would take two or three years before doctors would see the full extent of Mr. Marrocco's ability to use his new arms.
Asked if he could one day throw a football, Dr. Jaimie Shores said sure, but maybe not like Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.
