Chinese doctors grafted the hand of a 9 year old girl to her foot until they could reattach it to her arm!
A tractor ran over and completely severed 9 year old Ming Li’s hand from her arm. The arm was in too bad of shape for doctors to reattach it immediately. To preserve the hand, they grafted it to her foot for two months until her arm healed enough.
Then, they reattached it back to her arm. She can now move her wrist again and her hand is pink which indicates good circulation. In the next two years she’ll undergo 2 more surgeries to improve her hand functions and to remove her scars.
