double arm implants successful boston man exciting news

This is absolutely incredible! We had no idea this type of surgery was possible!

YAY for Doctors and science!!

Will Lautzenheiser WAS a double amputee that had both his arms AND legs taken away from him after a severe group A streptococcus infection in 2011.

However, due to a life altering double arm transplant, Will now has two functioning limbs again — his arms!!

How AH-Mazing is that?!?

The former film production and screenwriting professor at Montana University made his first public appearance on Wednesday since receiving the arms and he assured everyone that he's in peak shape!

Will appeared alongside some of the 13 doctors who performed the complicated nine-hour surgery in Boston and his partner Angel Gonzalez to show off his new arms!

He explained to onlookers that, yes, this is going to be a long process but he's already beginning to see changes.

He said:

"I had nothing before. I can move my elbow. It's astonishing. This person, who's anonymous to me, will always be as close to me as my own skin now."

The donor, however, will always remain a mystery to Will, seeing as his family decided to keep the identity anonymous.

That man and his parents did something so AH-mazing that day by donating his limbs to Will for this surgery, that the identity doesn't even matter.

Congrats to Will and we hope his recovery, which will take several more YEARS, will be easy and problem-free!

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all!
