Dr. Rodriguez leads NYU Langone’s vascular composite allotransplantation (VCA) program, which encompasses face and limb transplantation. He and his team performed NYU Langone’s first face transplant in August 2015 on Patrick Hardison, a firefighter from Senatobia, MS, who was severely burned in September 2001 in the line of duty. This case is widely recognized as the most extensive procedure of its kind to date – and the first performed in New York State.
