When a worker in China fell victim to a workplace accident severing his hand, he set out to find a way to save it. He found a doctor who had a solution and the hand was temporarily attached to his lower calf.
Now this is just one of those amazing medical stories that you absolutely need to see to believe. However, as I said above, some may find the images disturbing. I personally find the photos fascinating!
Because his arm was so badly damaged, the hand could not be reattached immediately. To give the arm time to heal, while keeping blood flow to the hand, Dr. Tang Juyu made the decision to attach the hand to the victim’s lower calf.
The hand has since been reattached to his arm and they expect he will make a full recovery.
