Limb surgery stretches leg19th June 2008
A man from Cambridgeshire has had his twisted leg - caused by fibular aplasia - stretched by surgery in order to restore it to the correct position.
Michael Gays had the tibia in his leg broken and stretched in 22 operations by doctors at Birmingham's Royal Orthopaedic Hospital. He said: "I'd been waiting for this moment all my life. It's all I would think of when I was fed up and in pain. It was the best feeling in the world."
