The University of Maryland gave details today about its groundbreaking face transplant surgery.  The medical team, over 150 strong, performed the surgery last week on a young male who face was shot in an accident in the late 90s. One week later, he is opening and closing his mouth, shaving and brushing his teeth, said Dr. Eduardo D. Rodriguez, associate professor of surgery at Maryland’s school of medicine and chief of plastic, reconstructive and maxillofacial surgery at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.
