Dr. Yang Li was presented with a patient with the grandest tumor he had ever encountered: Weighing 14 kg and spanning 40 cm in length, Yang Xiao recognized an initial growth on his neck during his teenage years. After several years, the tumor had infiltrated his entire spine, debilitating him to a great degree. A complex surgery was planned out in order to safely remove the stone tumors without damaging vital arteries and the spinal cord. After a 9 hour surgery, the patient lost 40 pints of blood, but was successfully cured. Amazingly, Dr. Yang Li was able to remove the entire bulk of the tumor, without damaging nerves, arteries or the spine.
