Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore has announced a university review board has given approval to allow a transplant team to begin accepting patients.

The transplant team will include a doctor who was a member of a team at the Cleveland Clinic that performed the nation's first nearly full-face transplant. Hospital officials say the procedure has only been performed six times in the United States.

In March, the University of Maryland Medical Center announced that surgeons had conducted the most extensive face transplant ever.
