Loren was fifteen when nerves in her neck were severed in a stabbing. The neurosurgeon said her arm would never move again. Michael, an Illinois attorney faced a similar diagnosis after a freak accident embedded a chain saw into his neck, paralyzing his arm. Eighteen-year-old Chelsey survived a horrific car accident in St. Louis, but her arm was also useless. None of these patients were willing to accept paralysis or worse, possible amputation. Dr. Susan E. Mackinnon's pioneering work in peripheral nerve transfer surgery is restoring movement to limbs that many doctors believe to be permanently paralyzed. She is also creating a teaching website to share her groundbreaking surgical "recipes" with surgeons around the world. This film is a story of personal triumph and medical innovation- inspiring those suffering from nerve injuries to seek out doctors who can perform these life changing surgeries.
