A lot of us are taking our doctors for granted. We are expecting them to save our lives or any of our family members, imposing a lot of demands even if they, themselves, are risking their lives just to save other people’s.
Just this week, a doctor in China went viral after he was pictured receiving treatment while he is performing surgery on a patient.
The surgeon, identified as Li Xin from Chenzhou Children’s Hospital in Hunan Province of Central China, was performing a life-saving surgery on a patient. He realized after 4 hours while performing the operation that he could not move his neck.
Dedicated to His Profession
Since he is not yet finished with the operation and he knew that it would still take him a few more hours to get everything done, the surgeon asked the help of his team of doctors to assist him with his neck instead of leaving the sick patient.
While Surgeon Li Xin was performing surgery on his patient, another doctor was also performing an emergency anesthesia therapy injection on him. This emergency treatment worked, and he was able to continue with his operation which ended after 9 hours.
After the surgery and the confirmation that the patient is safe from any harm, Surgeon Li Xin went for a full examination for his neck.
Netizens Were Very Happy
The photos were shared on a Facebook Page of China Global TV Network and went viral. A lot of netizens were very happy and amazed with the doctor’s dedication, especially since stories behind the operating rooms are very rare.
It is amazing a doctor will put aside his own life in order to save his patient’s. His condition may have gotten worse if he continued with the operation, but he still put his patient on top priority.
Show your appreciation to your doctor. Do not give them pain whenever they are giving you a diagnosis and always say “thank you.”
