This Man Is Heartbroken After Doctors Told Him That He Is ‘Too Tall’ For Surgery

Baraka Elias, a Tanzanian man, has told the BBC that a hospital has been unable to treat him because he is too tall. Baraka Elias, who is 7ft 4in (2.20m), said he needed hip replacement surgery after hurting himself in a fall.

However, doctors at a hospital in Dar es Salaam, told him that his height meant he would not fit properly in a hospital bed, Mr Elias said. They also told him their X-ray equipment was unsuitable for someone of his height, he added.

Local media quote doctors at the specialist Muhimbili Orthopaedic Institute in the commercial capital, Dar es Salaam, confirming Mr Elias’ story. Elias told BBC Swahili that doctors were now trying to see if he could be treated abroad.
