Hand Transplant

After an explosive blew up in U.S. Marine and Iraq War Veteran Josh Maloney's hand, he went on living without a right hand. That was until a human donor offered a new hand and Pittsburgh doctors successfully transplanted it. OnQ's Michael Bartley talks with Maloney of Brentwood, Pennsylvania about the extraordinary transplant surgery and how it's brought normalcy to his life.

Hand Transplant aired on Mar 10, 2010.
