Surgery a success after work accident

A 21-year-old man from the southern province  of Dong Nai received a successful operation to reattach his leg at the Trauma and Orthopedics Hospital in HCMC.

We reattached blood vessels, nerves and ligament of the man who had part of his right thigh cut off in a work accident, said Dr. Phan Dzu Le Thang from the hospital’s Microsurgery Faculty.

The man’s thigh was severely cut while operating heavy machinery to make corrugated iron sheeting.
He is currently recovering but doctors say that his nerves in his toes are still intact.
