Chinese Doctor Grows Artificial Ear on Patient's Arm

A plastic surgeon in China has successfully grown an artificial ear on a man's arm in a pioneering medical procedure.

The patient, surnamed Ji, lost his right ear in an accident and yearned to have it back, reports Huanqiu.com, an affiliation to People's Daily

Doctor Guo Shuzhong from a hospital in Xi'an, China's Shaanxi Province, used Mr Ji's cartilage from his ribs to build the new ear; and he expects to transplanted the organ to the man's head in about four months.

According to the Huanqiu report, Mr Ji sustained serious injuries in the right side of his face in a traffic accident about a year ago. His right ear was torn from his face.  

The man, whose age is not specified, has since received multiple surgical operations to restore his facial skin and his cheeks. However, he felt frustrated about losing his right ear for good.

The patient told a report from China News: 'I lost one ear. I have always felt that I am not complete.'
