This week is Organ Donation Week and to mark it Papworth Hospital invited back one of its rather special heart patients to help publicise the need for more donors.
Tom Shing was only the second patient at Papworth to receive a donor heart thanks to a new technique pioneered at the world renowned hospital.
Until recently surgeons only transplanted beating hearts from donors who had been declared 'brain stem dead' - but now they're also able to use hearts that have stopped beating when someone dies.
Stuart Leithes' report contains images of the surgical procedure.

Couples in Cambridgeshire who are struggling to have a baby have been told they won't get IVF treatment on the NHS.
Health bosses in the county have decided to scrap free fertility treatment in order to save around £700,000 a year.
Clinical Commissioning Groups are recommended to provide three free cycles of treatment.
Many in the Anglia region now only pay for one or two but in Cambridgeshire there will be none.
The vote was nine to four in favour of scrapping the treatment.
A woman has been speaking of the rapid decline of her bubbly ski-instructor sister who's been struck down by dementia in one of the youngest cases doctors have ever seen.
Becky Barletta from Hundon near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk was diagnosed a year ago at the age of just 31.
Now she's been given just 10 years to live and is receiving around the clock care.
