“Don’t try to trick me. I’ll ask you one thing, is the Zhu-Ling Achilles Repair the best surgery Doctor Ling has ever done?” Mao Chengwen, who was sitting on the edge of the bed, placed his leg over his other knee, shook it gently, and made the calf with the ruptured Achilles tendon sway.
Ma Yanlin was still young. He looked at the patient’s injury and felt his thigh twitch.
Zuo Cidian peered at Ma Yanlin and took the initiative to speak, “The Zhu-Ling Achilles Repair is indeed the surgery which Doctor Ling is most famous for.”
“I had a feeling that you wouldn’t be able to say no either,” Mao Chengwen laughed a couple of times before he said, “His surname is already in the surgical technique. It must be the best surgery he has done.”
“However, it’s not necessarily the best for you.” Zuo Cidian was waiting for this sentence, and he calmly said, “It is only right for us to treat the appropriate disease with the appropriate method. For example, you don’t need to find a doctor from the Cardiology Department when you injure your finger, right?”
“My fingers are fine. My hamstring is broken. Doctor Ling treats feet, right?” Mao Chengwen said as he glanced at Zuo Cidian and said, “Are you worried that I don’t have enough money or something? Ah, just name the cost. Don’t beat around the bush, just say it!”
Zuo Cidian looked at Mao Chengwen and smiled. He was even more certain that the patient was from Eastern Science Hospital now.
Eastern Science Hospital was a foreign-invested private hospital, which meant that it was a place famous for being expensive.
The patients who could afford the cost of Eastern Science Hospital, even if it was just the registration fees and examination fees, would have no problem paying for their own expenses at public general hospitals like Yun Hua Hospital.
“It’s not about money. It’s about offering you the right medical care.” Zuo Cidian refused again.
“Since you’re talking about services, you should let Doctor Ling Ran carry out the Zhu-Ling Achilles Repair for me… is that what it’s called?” Mao Chengwen asked a patient in his forties, who was beside him.
The patient only nodded lightly.
Zuo Cidian shook his head gently. “The process in our hospital does not work like this.”
“Not like this? Then how does it work?” Mao Chengwen looked at Zuo Cidian askance.
Zuo Cidian smiled and said, “The hospital has its own ways. After you go through the examination and diagnosis, if we find that it is suitable for you to receive the Zhu-Ling Achilles Repair, we will arrange it for you. However, if it is not appropriate for you, we will not carry it out.”
The atmosphere became a little stiff.
Zuo Cidian kept smiling.
“How do I know if it is appropriate?” Mao Chengwen’s tone suddenly dropped.
Zuo Cidian said, “If you are an athlete and need to compete, it is appropriate for you to consider the Zhu-Ling Achilles Repair Technique. Moreover, if you are a sports enthusiast, you will need an Achilles tendon that can perform high-intensity tasks in the future…”
“I am going to climb Mount Everest. Does that count?” Mao Chengwen suddenly asked.
Zuo Cidian was stunned. “Mount Everest?”
“Yes, I have always wanted to climb Mount Everest. I can’t let go of my dream just because of a surgery,” Mao Chengwen said it with a serious expression.
Zuo Cidian could not quite tell what he should do now.
Over recent years, many entrepreneurs have climbed Mount Everest. There were hikers who hiked on their own, as well as those who used helicopters. It was said that there were hikers who were also carried all the way up. Most importantly, there were hikers older than Mao Chengwen.
Zuo Cidian really could not say that Mao Chengwen’s idea was wrong.
Also, there was no need for proof.
“You should know that patients who have gone through the Zhu-Ling Achilles Repair need longer rest time, and for those with larger wounds…” Zuo Cidian introduced the advantages and disadvantages of the surgery one by one.
Mao Chengwen nodded impatiently.
When Zuo Cidian finished, Mao Chengwen asked, “This will do. Can you let me have this good surgery? Public general hospitals are really troublesome. Don’t you guys focus on service?”
“It doesn’t matter whether the surgery is good or bad…”
“Yes, yes. I want this named surgery…”
“I’ll give you some checklists. After you checked them, I will go through them again.” Zuo Cidian thought about it and felt that Mao Chengwen’s indicators were really appropriate for the surgery.
At this time, the patient in his forties looked at it and raised his hand. “I also want to climb Mount Everest.”
“Can people have overlapping dreams?” Zuo Cidian asked in resignation.
The patient in his forties spoke rhythmically, “Dreams can be affected by each other. I think mountain climbing is good, I want to receive the Zhu-Ling Achilles Repair.”
“Okay, let me ask about the surgery schedule.” Zuo Cidian did not try to stop him anymore.
Normally speaking, he had the right to refuse to accept some patients, but he still agreed because Ling Ran did not have enough patients.
Zuo Cidian gave a general report of the situation once he was back in the office.
Ling Ran did not give his opinion of the situation.
The patients’ wishes and doctors’ ideas were often different. It would be a better solution to find a common ground between them.
In addition, no matter how difficult to handle the sequelae of the Zhu-Ling Achilles Repair was, it was nothing more than a matter of the patient requiring enough rest and attention. If the other party understood the situation, all Ling Ran needed to do was to treat him.
“When do you plan to operate on them…” Zuo Cidian asked one more question to avoid having no answer when the patients asked him later.
“Let’s do it today,” Ling Ran looked at the time and realized that he would be free in a while.
Zuo Cidian gasped in surprise. ‘Why are you so fast today?’
“This is an Achilles tendon rupture surgery, of course it needs to be done as soon as possible.” Ling Ran stood up as he said.
“The scans might not be out yet.”
“Go to the Medical Imaging Department and urge them to be faster.
Zuo Cidian could only walk out obediently.
While he was on his way, Zuo Chidian notified the doctor in charge of the patients.
Soon, Mao Chengwen and his friend received the news.
“Isn’t it too soon for us to receive the surgery today?”
“If you receive treatment for your Achilles tendon sooner, it will be good for Achilles tendon rupture.” Zuo Cidian might not agree to their statement in his heart, but his tone changed again.
Mao Chengwen’s carefree expression became a little bit stiff.
Normal people would feel afraid when they were about to go through surgery.
Zuo Cidian coughed a couple of times and said, “I have specially requested for your slots. If you guys don’t want it, I won’t know when will be your turn next.”
Mao Chengwen and his friend finally made their decision.
They gave instructions! Said farewells! Had a lot of worries!
After that, the two went on the operating table.
Ling Ran went full out on carrying out the Zhu-Ling Achilles Repair, and he was not affected by the preoperative conversation, instead, he felt a little livelier.
Compared with professional athletes, their physical conditions were different, and so were the conditions of their Achilles tendon.
Therefore, this was the first time Ling Ran had used the Zhu-Ling Achilles Repair on ordinary individuals.
Ling Ran pondered as he worked. He felt that there were many places to add to the Perfect Level Achilles Tendon Repair Technique.
“Doctor Ling, there are other patients from Guangdong,” Lu Wenbin reported once the operating theater door was opened, and he stepped inside.
“How many of them?” Ling Ran asked.
“Just take care of it as usual. If you can’t handle them, go to Zuo Cidian,” Ling Ran said. He did not raise his head as his hands worked without any sign of panic. He even felt a little happy.
