Jamie Smith-Sessa

Unilateral Right Arm Above elbow

On July 12, 2011, Jamie was severely injured in a motorcycle accident. With his strong will to live and the love and support of his family, he survived brain trauma, chronic pain and the loss of his dominant right arm. Jamie’s road to recovery has included targeted muscle reinnervation surgery, an innovative procedure that reassigned existing nerves, allowing Jamie to control his new myoelectric prosthetic arm.
