One of the best things about modern technological advancements is the upgrades in the medical field. It enables patients to experience recovery like never before, and doctors can do the almost impossible.

One such incident involves an eight year-old boy and his impressive record breaking road to recovery. Zion Harvey is a little boy from Baltimore who was in need of a double hand transplant. The boy had lost his hands and feet to an infection and underwent an operation in July at a children’s hospital in Philadelphia.

The doctors transplanted both arms and forearms on little Harvey quite successfully. Apparently, an attempt like this has never been made on a child, and it had only been done 25 times before on adults. Earlier on, the boy also had a kidney transplant which he had lost due to a serious infection.

After a little bit of intensive therapy and getting used to his new limbs, Zion Harvey will soon be able to play around like a child should. Hopefully, other patients are inspired by this young boy’s story and soldier on towards their road to recovery.
