In the hands of an expert surgeon, Prof Simon Kay, Jonas's toes were grafted onto his hand, to enable him use his hand again. In a complex 12 hour surgery, two of his toes were used to replace the lost fingers on his right hand.

Mr. Jonas was quite shattered after the bike mishap. He had almost given up hope of being able to use his right hand again.

Ecstatic with renewed hope after the surgery Jonas said, "Now with the new fingers I can hold a pint glass properly, which is great. Little things like that are taken for granted but I can enjoy a drink, hold a laptop without dropping it, and hold a bottle."
