In brief: Nerve transplants

Yes quite possible.
The biggest issue is coverage. Right now where we are heading is toward rationed care, expensive services will be restricted. If transplants are expensive and successful in less than 50% of cases they will likely not be covered. Pt will be needed after and this is already being restricted under obamacare to 24 sessions unless a new problem arises.
