Default Medical miracle: BAMC surgeons perform groundbreaking arm replant

Brooke Army Medical Center surgeons performed their first above-the-elbow arm replant on a 22-year-old trauma patient last year and almost 10 months later the patient is thriving. Kelsey Ward's right arm was severed when a guardrail pierced the passenger-side window of her SUV in a car wreck. San Antonio firefighters administered a life-saving tourniquet and were fortunate enough to find her arm in the wreckage. They packed it in ice and brought it to BAMC, one of two Level I Trauma Centers in San Antonio.
