Face Transplant Research

NYU Langone’s Face Transplant Program, part of the Hansjörg Wyss Department of Plastic Surgery, is a clinical research study that is open to selected patients for the treatment of facial trauma or disfigurement, burns, and acquired malformations of the face. For more information about our current study, view our clinical trial information from the National Institutes of Health. If you are a patient or physician who would like more information about our face transplant services, please contact us at 646-501-4481 or facetransplant@nyumc.org.

In August 2015, NYU Langone’s face transplant team, led by Dr. Eduardo D. Rodriguez, performed the most complex and comprehensive face transplant to date, and the first in New York State.
