- This video shows how a man in China had his ear grown in his arm
- He had lost his ear in a car accident
- Doctors performed a virtual miracle to grow it back
Using cartilage from the injured man's ribs, doctors creatively 'grew' another ear - implanting his tissue into his arm to 'grow skin' and then attaching it to his head.
This kind of medical technology has been used before to help people, especially those who had been burnt.
Having a missing visible defect is traumatizing and embarrassing, so the nature of these kinds of operations is life-changing for many people.
The advancements in medical treatment are sure to grow as well, giving hope to so many people who suffer from the stigmas of visual maiming.
