Poor Chinese girl with snake shaped spine to have corrective surgery

Above are x-rays taken  on January 31 of Xiao Rong of Chongqing, China, who has a severely twisted spine.

The 14-year-old is to receive surgery to correct her snake-shaped spine this February at Xinqiao Hospital.

Xiao developed a twisted spine when she was just 9-years-old.

“My grandmother found my shoulders are not on the same line,” she says. Her spine became more and more twisted, which makes it difficult for her to breathe as the twisted spine presses on her right lung.

Doctors have planned a two-phase surgery on Xiao - the doctors intend to cut off part of the twisted vertebra, and then the second phase of surgery is to make the snaky spine straight.

“The risk is very high,” says a doctor at the hospital, “as any mistake or unpredicted factors can make her paralyzed for her remaining life.”
