    DELRAY BEACH (CBSMiami) — It’s being called a medical marvel. A south Florida doctor used a unique procedure to actually grow back a man’s finger that a horse bit off.

    “He really wanted to have his finger healed, and fast,” said Dr. Eugenio Rodriguez.

    Advanced, cutting edge, and without any surgery or amputation, general surgeon Eugenio Rodriguez said he could make the finger grow back.

    “This is something, that there actually is no experience into this,” said Dr. Rodriguez.

    Using the bladder tissue of a pig, Dr. Rodriguez made a template of Halpern’s finger and attached it to what was left.

    The result was astounding.

    The finger’s cells, bone, soft tissue, even nail grew into the mold. “It’s very interesting to see a patient heal. That’s my passion, wound healing. It is fascinating to have the new results,” said Dr. Rodriguez.

    It’s a procedure both Dr. Rodriguez and Halpern agree could pave the road for other more complex injuries.

    as an amputee myself, I would love to believe this, but the picture is so blurry it makes me very suspicious.
