In 2001, Patrick Hardison was just doing his job as a firefighter when he was trapped in a burning house in Senatobia Mississippi. As a result of the accident and severe burns, he lost his ears, hair, and eyelids. Even though his good nature and kind heart stayed the same, people had a difficult time looking past his injuries to see the man he was. Life became a journey defined by appearance and face values that Patrick had not expected to take. A team of highly skilled surgeons at NYU Langone used their plastic surgery training to transform the life of Patrick Hardison. With a dream of being able to look normal at his daughters’ weddings, Patrick now has a new face. Dr. Eduardo Rodriguez was the lead surgeon and performed the most extensive face transplant to date.
