A team of more than 30 doctors and other providers led by plastic surgeon Dr. Bohdan Pomahac at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston performed the U.S.'s first full face transplant on a 25-year-old construction worker from Texas who was disfigured in a power line accident. Surgeons were not able to restore the man's eyesight or full function to the left side of his face. The operation was paid for through grants from the Department of Defense.
