Landmark Larynx Transplant

Landmark Larynx Transplant


Brenda Jensen is now able to speak for the first time in 11 years, thanks to a groundbreaking larynx and trachea transplant carried out by a joint team of surgeons from UCL and UC Davis. Techniques of the procedure, particularly the repairing of muscles and nerves in the neck, had been developed by Professor Martin Birchall (UCL Ear Institute).
