Doctors save man’s hand by sewing it into patient’s belly

Doctors in Texas went a step forward  and have used an unusual technique to save a man’s badly burned hand: they sewed it into his belly for three weeks while it healed.  It looked like something in a sci-fi movie, but the patient party also agreed to do so.



Retired ranch worker and school driver Frank Reyes had his left hand badly burned in an accident in his farm. His hand was crushed by a hot metallic wheel in the temperature of more than 100 degrees and doctors decided to do something extraordinary, So they decided to attach his hand into his belly. Dr. Anthony Echo explained the unorthodox medical procedure to CBSN.
