87-Year-Old Man's Hand Saved After Doctors Surgically Attach It to Stomach

There are some things you have to see to believe. This is one of those things. After a bad burn, 87-year-old Frank Reyes had his hand saved thanks to a very unusual surgery. Doctors at Houston Methodist Hospital surgically attached his left hand under a pocket of tissue in his stomach for three weeks to give it time to heal. This is incredible and the advancements in surgery keep progressing at light speed. Soon we will be able to just create human beings from scratch…or is that being done already…hmmm
