With a one-of-a-kind surgery, the doctor opened up Carlos’ stomach and created a sterile pouch inside.
The doctor then sewed his hand into the pouch, which acted like an incubator to heal it.
Carlos said, “An hour after the surgery, I woke up. The doctor told me: ‘I’ve done a rare procedure.'”
Carlos realized the doctors had actually sewn his hand into his stomach.
Carlos had to wait 42 days for the healing to finish up enough that his hand could be removed.
