Successful operation in China - level 2

A person in China was in a traffic accident and the accident injured his spinal cord. The person couldn’t move after the accident, but that problem can change very soon.

Chinese experts created a special material which can regenerate nerves. They used this material to help the patient who underwent a 4-hour-long operation. There were no complications.

Five other patients with spinal cord injuries will soon have operations.

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
