Baby Born With Third Arm, Doctors want to amputate!

Below are a few excerpts from an Associated Press article released today about a Chinese infant boy who was born with three arms.

SHANGHAI, China -- Doctors in Shanghai on Tuesday were considering surgery options for a 2-month-old boy born, identified only as "Jie-Jie," with an unusually well-formed third arm.

Dr. Chen Bochang, head of the orthopedics department at Shanghai Children's Medical Center stated, "His case is quite peculiar. We have no record of any child with such a complete third arm"

Chen said doctors hoped to work out a plan for surgery, but the boy's small size made it impossible to perform certain tests that would help them prepare.

If they don't amputate the extra arm he would hell of a drummer when he becomes older.
