Matthew Scott, the world's first successful hand transplant recipient, and Jerry Fisher, the nation's second recipient celebrated their four and two year anniversaries, respectively, with a trip to Jewish Hospital for their yearly check-ups. Appearing confident and happy, the two men answered media questions at a Feb. 14 press conference.
“I feel fantastic,” said Scott. “I am four years out from the surgery and still gaining function.” At this time, he was able to perform everyday living activities including dialing a telephone, tying his shoes and opening doors along with picking up small fine objects. Scott enjoys plays catch with his sons Jeremy and Ian and holding his wife, Dawn’s, hand.
“With function, I shoot for the moon. I have much better speed in doing things with two hands and can catch things before they fall,” said Fisher. He used his transplanted hand for daily use and function such as turning pages of a newspaper, opening cabinet doors and is able to carry 20 pounds with his transplanted hand. Fisher is married and has three boys -- wife, Sonya and sons, David, Zachary, and Nicholas.
