Taking Steps to Reduce Transplant Rejection

Our specialists perform vascularized composite allograft (VCA) which are transplants composed of several kinds of tissues like skin, muscle and bone which can be made to construct limbs and faces. To reduce the chance of transplant rejection, our specialists treat patients with antibodies on the day of their transplant procedure, followed by a donor bone marrow infusion several days later.
