Chinese docs save man's severed hand by sewing it to his ankle

Washington, Dec. 17 : Chinese surgeons have successfully conducted a reattachment surgery on a man's severed right hand after he lost it in an accident at work.

Before the surgery, Xiao Wei's limb had been sewed to his ankle in an attempt to save it from dying while they treated his other injuries, Fox News reported.

Wei said that after his colleagues took him and his hand to a hospital, doctors said they would be unable to save his limb.

But, surgeons at a bigger hospital saved his hand after they came up with a unique solution.
