    Have you read Mary Doria Russell’s THE SPARROW, Martha?

    The main character, Father Ernesto Sandoz, after being horribly disfigured in a “First Contact” situation, is fitted with what the author describes as “braces,” which enable him to use his hands once more.

    Of coure, THE SPARROW is definitely not “hard SF”; but it’s an amazing read (about a “First Contact” situation that goes horribly wrong) and I heartily recommend it.
