- Iraqi soldier Hayder Adnan Abdul Hameed Al Jadir's arm was amputated two months ago after a blast.
- Thereafter, he arrived at Max Super Specialty Hospital, Saket, New Delhi to have his cosmetic treatment of his arm.
- Though American surgeons in Iraq had replanted the arm, it was devoid of mobility and flexibility.
- According to Dr. Sunil Choudhary, senior director and chief plastic surgeon at the hospital, Hayder's arm was lifeless and the surgery had to be performed under a microscope so as to restore the muscles, bones and nerves as small as .88 in diameter.
- In the 12 hour surgery the forearm was repaired and Hayder was happy with the treatment.
- According to Dr. Chaudary a lot of patients are recieved from the war torn areas of Iraq not only because of the affordable treatment opportunities but also the ease of getting an approved medical visa.
