"(CNN) -- A 40-year-old quad amputee was all thank yous at a news conference Tuesday at a Boston-area hospital as he showed off his two new arm transplants.

Will Lautzenheiser sat next to the doctors from Brigham and Women's Hospital who spent almost nine hours in surgery with him last month.

"To have come here and to have received this gift is really astonishing to me, and it's obviously life-changing," he said.

Lautzenheiser, a former professor of film production and screenwriting, lost his limbs in 2011 after a battle with a severe streptococcal infection, according to the hospital.

The arms came from an anonymous donor through the New England Organ Bank, the hospital said.

"Of course I want to thank, to acknowledge and to honor the memory of the man whose arms I have so gratefully received," Lautzenheiser said. "This person who's anonymous to me will always be as close to me as my own skin now." (More)

He added, "I'd hug him if I could. Too soon?"
