Friday, January 11, 2019- A surgeon who recently went viral on social media he was spotted taking a nap on the operating table has spoken out.

The Chinese orthopedic surgeon called Luo Shanpeng performed emergency surgeries on 6 patients in a row without taking a break.

 After the 6th surgery which took 8 hours, the doctor laid his head on the operating table while still holding the arm of the patient he had just reattached and he fell asleep.

A nurse took the photo and shared on WeChat, a Chinese messaging platform, and it went viral.
The nurse wrote: “Seeing this makes my heart ache.”
Speaking to a Chinese news outlet, the Surgeon said he decided to carry out emergency surgery for the patient despite the fact that he had already worked over time because the patient would have lost his arm.
 ‘I wanted to shut my eyes and have a rest. I didn’t expect to fall asleep.’ He said on the viral photo.
However, he Luo insists that it was an honour to become a surgeon and the happiest thing for him was to see his patients recovering.
