PHOTO: Chinese Man Born With Nine Toes Undergoes Surgery To Cut Off Four Of Them

21 years after leaving with a birth deformity, a Chinese man identified as Ajun has undergone surgery to correct nine toes on his left foot. The Chinese man has two smaller toes in a ‘v’ shape rather than a big toe and smaller digits sprouted out between his normal-sized toes in odd places. 
Ajun who distanced himself from any social interaction owing to the deformity in his left foot disclosed he was too embarrassed to ask a girl on a date.“I stopped wearing sandals outside since my third year of primary school. I’ve never had a girlfriend because I’m so imperfect. I never thought I’d find anyone who wants to be with me, he said while describing his tough schooldays. 
According to reports, he suffered for so long with the condition because of his parents’ stubborn belief that it was a ‘gift from the heavens’.It was learnt that Ajun’s superstitious parents did not correct the left foot surgically because a fortune-teller told them they were a good omen. Surgically, people with extra digits can be easily treated during childhood. 
Ajun said: ‘They were superstitious, so they didn’t deal with it. They thought if it really looked too bad, I could just cover it with my shoes.’ Ajun was however determined to rid himself of the extra toes once he reached adulthood. Dr Wu Xiang, from Shunde Heping Surgical Hospital in Foshan, said: ‘It’s very rare to see such a serious deformity having not been treated in a 21-year-old patient.’ His team spent nine hours operating on Ajun, forging a new big toe and chopping off the extra ones. Dr Wu said: ‘Other hospitals would’ve just removed his outermost extra toes. ‘That would’ve been the easiest solution, but it wouldn’t look the best. 
‘His most natural-looking toe is on the outside, so we decided to migrate it inwards to its most ideal position, replacing his fifth digit and creating a new big toe.’ Polydactyly is the scientific name for having extra digits on hands and feet. Affecting one in every 700 to 1,000 worldwide, it occurs during the sixth or seventh week of pregnancy, where a foetus’ ‘paddle hands and feet’ divide into fingers and toes.
