Description

He is Dr. Samir Mardini, the Mayo Clinic surgeon who led a team of dozens that pulled off Andy’s face transplant.

They spent more than 50 Saturdays over a three year period planning and practicing every step of the surgery with the team of surgeons, nurses, surgical technicians and anesthesiologists.

For Andy, it was that tedious work connecting the nerves that he thinks made all the difference.
