Face Transplant Photos

Wow, this is quite an incredible story. CNN actually has photos of the first U.S. face transplant patient and they are quite remarkable (viewer discretion is advised). Click on this link to see the photos.

Connie Culp was shot in the face in 2004 and now she has a face again. Culp received the face transplant at the Cleveland Clinic and she has publicly expressed her gratitude. Medical technology has played a tremendous role in this example and I wonder what we will be capable of doing in several years. I admire her courage and wish her the best recovery.
