Derek, Mark, Owen and Callie are performing a bilateral arm transplant on Zack, a logger who lost his arms four months ago. If you think this is a rare procedure, you’re right. Lexie notices that the arm donor has a tattoo of the name Nicole, who is the dead man’s wife. Both the patient and his wife agree that Nicole will be their new favorite name if it means getting those new arms.
The surgery goes well with the first arm, but a clot develops in the second. Callie jumps in, tells the rest of the room to shut up as she does her thing. And Dr. Torres does her thing well. The second arm pinks up as applause fills the OR. And it’s all caught on film!
