Bionic Arm Surgery Update

Three years ago, Moffitt Cancer Center and Shriner’s Hospital teamed up to perform a surgery that gave then 8-year-old Josalyn Kaldenberg of Iowa the nation’s first expandable prosthetic arm. Now, Josalyn and her family have returned to Moffitt so surgeons can lengthen the device for the first time. University Beat on WUSF 89.7 speaks with Josalyn, her mother and her surgeon, Moffitt's Dr. Doug Letson, about the procedure and how successfully Josalyn has adjusted to life with the arm.
