In this chronicle of a pioneering life in medicine, surgeon Dr. Maria Siemionow recounts her goal to perform the world's first full face transplant. When Dr. Siemionow announced in December 2005 that she had been granted approval to perform this revolutionary surgery, she was bombarded with media attention and moving requests from people wanting to know who would be eligible for the operation. In December 2008, it was announced that she had completed the nation's first face transplant. The story of Dr. Siemionow's groundbreaking and controversial pursuit is one of courage and hope and reintroduces readers to their own faces--triumphs of form and function, as she explains. The face in your mirror will never seem quite the same.
