The man who lost his hands in a train accident has got a bilateral hand transplant - GoMedii



A tragic accident robbed a 45-year-old painter of both hands, leaving him facing a bleak future. However, a groundbreaking surgical achievement by a team of doctors in Delhi, coupled with a generous organ donation pledge from Meena Mehta, the former administrative head of a prominent South Delhi school, has brought hope and transformation.


In what marks Delhi’s first successful bilateral hand transplant, the painter is set to be discharged from Sir Ganga Ram Hospital tomorrow. His life took a drastic turn in 2020 when a train accident claimed both of his hands. Hailing from an underprivileged background, he found himself at a hopeless crossroads.


The turning point came through the miraculous generosity of Meena Mehta, who, before her tragic demise and being declared brain-dead, had pledged her organs for posthumous use. Not only did her kidney, liver, and corneas enhance the lives of three other individuals, but her hands also breathed new life into the shattered dreams of the struggling painter.

The success of this remarkable feat owes much to the relentless efforts of the medical team that undertook the Herculean task. The intricate surgery, spanning over 12 hours, intricately connected every artery, muscle, tendon, and nerve between the donor’s hands and the recipient’s arms. The dedicated endeavors of the healthcare staff culminated in a moment of triumph, captured in a photograph where the painter, now with his hands restored, flashed a double thumbs-up – a powerful symbol of the journey from adversity to triumph.
