The New Jersey state medical examiner’s office on Tuesday announced that it had performed a hair transplant on a transplant recipient who had undergone a major head transplant surgery in Texas.
The state medical examiners office said in a news release that Dr. David B. Cerny, a transplant surgeon and head transplant surgeon at New York University Langone Medical Center in New York, performed the procedure on David M. Burditt, a 49-year-old male transplant recipient from Virginia who had his left and right ears removed.
Cervy said that the transplanted ears were able to “respond to normal hearing functions.”
He said that Burdett, who has a history of hearing loss, is now able to hear.
“He is able to function normally,” Cernys statement said.
Burditt’s transplant surgery was performed in April and he received a successful transplant, the statement said, but he is now receiving a second surgery that will involve his right ear, which is more than 90 percent of the way through the surgery.
The medical examiner said it is “expected that the remaining parts of his ear will not be able to be completely removed” and that it will take a couple of weeks for his right eye to fully heal.
