Chinese doctors have proved once again that they can go way too far to give someone a new life. 

Mr. Zhou is a factory worker in Changsha, Central China. In a regular day when Zhou was busy working in his factory. Unfortunately, a spinning blade machine chopped off his left hand. He was taken to Xiangya Hospital in a critical condition. The tissues of the arm area were severely damaged, and it was a challenge for the doctors to let his hand back to the normal. And simply reattaching his hand was full of risks, so the daring doctors generated an idea.

They operated a ground-breaking surgery and grafted Zhou's arm onto his leg for a month to allow the tendons and nerves to heal. The hand started resuming blood supply, and it stayed alive for a month getting attached to the ankle. 

After a month, spending ten long hours of surgery, doctors reattached Zhou's hand to his arm. Zhou is now recovering and has started moving his fingers.
