In a rare case of reconstructive surgery, surgeons at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital rejoined three fingers and reconstructed a thumb with a toe finger in a 44-year-old patient from Uttarakhand who had suffered an industrial injury. Colleagues rushed him to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital eight hours after the injury as he bled profusely. They carried his severed fingers in a polythene bag but his thumb was too mutilated to be brought. The thumb was reconstructed from the toe finger.
