Oklahoma man receives double hand transplant  |  September 3, 2010

Check out this amazing story of an Oklahoma chiropractor, Dr. Richard Edwards, who was last week the recipient of a double hand transplant. Six hand surgeons took more than 20 hours to complete the surgery, and Edwards is now recovering.

Edwards lost his hands in a truck accident more than 4 years ago. Since then he has been largely dependent on others to perform everyday routines. His family is hopeful that the generous gift from a donor and donor family will give him restored possibilities in life.
