And the American child - who lost his hands and feet at the age of two due to a life-threatening sepsis infection - is continuing to receive daily therapy, which could result in further advances. 
 
Before undergoing the 11 hour operation, the young boy was unable to dress, feed and wash himself. Zion told doctors that his ambition was to one day swing a baseball bat. 
 
After achieving this, the child, from Baltimore in Maryland said: "Here's the piece of my life that was missing. Now it's here, my life is complete." 
 
Within days of the US surgery, which involved four medical teams, working simultaneously2, the child was able to move his fingers. 
 
By six months, he could move the transplanted hand muscles, and soon after was able to use scissors and crayons, doctors found. 
 
And 12 months after undergoing surgery, the boy was able to fulfil his dream of swinging a baseball bat, using both hands.
