Louisville's reputation for medical innovation is pretty well established, with the first successful US hand transplants, and the mechanical hearts (the 14th recently inserted in a patient this past week). But this is a little above-and-beyond. It'll be interesting to follow and see how the ethicists find in the matter.

One thing is for sure: no one would want mine as a transplant ;-)

There was a star trek episode where some evil person wanted this woman and he murdered the man she was attracted to and had his face transplanted onto himself. I do understand how this could be life-changing in a positive way but, yeah, I think "creepy" pretty well sums up my reaction. :-\
