Medical Wonder! Doctors attach man's arm to his groin

by Staff writer

A 25-year-old truck driver Israel Sarrio, lost his arm in a traffic accident.

Doctors at the Levante Rehabilitation Centre in Valencia were able to reattach the arm, but the stump soon became infected.

In an effort to save the arm, a team of surgeons re-amputated it and attached it to Sarrio’s groin.

This kept the arm alive by feeding it with blood. The infected stump healed in nine days, at which stage doctors re-amputated the arm from the groin and attached it back where it belonged.

Aside from a small loss of mobility in his fingers, Sarrio made a full recovery.
