After a series of complicated and risky surgeries, China’s “folded man” is finally able to stand upright for the first time in 28 years. Li Hua suffers from ankylosing spondylitis which can cause bones to fuse and the spine curve forward. In the case of 47-year-old Li, his upper body folded forward completely. After enduring four surgeries which involved breaking and reconstructing some of his bones, he is gradually adjusting to a far more normal life than he had before.
