China ready for face transplant operations – Xinhua

From Xinhua:

Operations similar to the world’s first partial face transplant in France last month could be set for China.

After experts from a military hospital in Nanjing announced earlier this week that they have the ability to perform such surgery, the hospital has been inundated with telephone inquiries, according to Chen Fang, a nurse with the General Hospital of Nanjing Military Commands in east China’s Jiangsu Province.

“We’ve been preparing for such operations ever since 2003,” Hong Zhijian, director of the section of the hospital told China Daily yesterday.

“If there is a suitable patient at the moment, we can graft a new face for him or her,” he said.
