10 amazing body part reattachment surgeries you won’t believe (+Photos)

3. Severed Hand Grafted to Leg Before Reattachment



In 2015, a factory worked named “Zhou” severed his hand in a spinning blade machine he was operating at work. Led by micro-surgeon Dr. Tang Juyu, the medical team at a Changsha hospital would’ve immediately reattached the hand, but the tendons and nerves on Zhou’s affected wrist had been terribly battered by trauma and had to be given time to heal. Thus, in the meantime, the doctors attached Zhou’s severed hand to his leg, near the ankle, to provide the hand with sufficient blood flow. Then, after more than a month had passed and the tendons and nerves on the patient’s wrist had been deemed sufficiently healed, the hand was successfully reattached in a 10-hour procedure. In fact, after a few months of recovery, Zhou regained partial use of his reattached hand. Surprisingly, micro-surgeon Dr. Tang Juyu and his team had successfully performed the same procedure under a similar circumstance in 2013.
