Date:2/12/2008

'Transplanting a Face: Notes on a Life in Medicine' by Maria Siemionow,

M.D.

CLEVELAND, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- How do you determine the value of a face? Imagine, for a moment, being unable to touch the face of someone you love. "Now you're beginning to grasp something of the burden a disfigured person carries," writes Dr. Maria Siemionow, section head of plastic surgery research at Cleveland Clinic (http://www.clevelandclinic.org/), in "Transplanting a Face: Notes on a Life in Medicine" from Cleveland Clinic Press (http://www.clevelandclinicpress.org/).

This consumer health book follows Dr. Siemionow's journey after she received approval in 2004 to perform the world's first full face transplant. The story of her groundbreaking and controversial pursuit is one of courage and hope, and not just for those with facial deformities.

Soon people whose faces have been disfigured because of birth defects, accidents or disease could have the opportunity to lead a new life. In Dr. Siemionow's face transplant book you can:

-- Learn what a triumph of form and function the human face represents.

-- Follow the planning for a procedure that has never before been

attempted.

-- Meet the people who are eager to be considered for a full face

transplant.

-- Understand the emotional impact of preparing to receive another's face.

Transplanting a Face reveals how much more than muscle and tissue there is to the human face. People who read this book may never look at their face -- or anyone else's -- the same way again.
