Doctors in China have helped a man grow a new ear on his arm after he lost his right one in a car accident a year ago.

According to China Daily via AsiaOne, the patient named Ji who is in his 30s has been receiving treatment from Guo Shuzhong, an expert in reconstructive surgery at the First Affiliated Hospital of Xi'an Jiaotong University in Xi'an, Shaanxi province since getting injured a year ago.

Guo has 33 years of experience.

He and his colleague Shu Maoguo devised a three-step reconstruction plan using part of the patient's rib cartilage.
