World’s Tallest Man Kosen Recovers from Surgery

As per reports, it has been revealed that the world’s tallest man Sultan Kosen from Turkey has been successfully recovering from her radio surgery by which he will no longer be able to grow. Kosen is 2.51 metres tall, and would have been growing in length if would not have undergone this surgery in the US.

Doctors, who treated Kosen, were of the view that he was suffering from a hormonal disorder which is known as acromegaly. In this disease, a person keeps on growing even in her adulthood. Kosen said that he feels blessed that he has made World Record as otherwise he would not have got a chance to tell the world about his problem.

Kosen will continue to receive medical therapies, which will be done to treat the excessive height he has achieved. Neurosurgeon Jason Sheehan, who performed the non-invasive procedure was of the view that Kosen was suffering from this troublesome pituitary tumor, which was important to remove from his body.

Jason said that they are hoping that Kosen does not face any other challenges due to his height problem. She further affirmed that Kosen is not the first one, who was suffering from this problem. “In terms of pituitary disorders, acromegaly is one of the more common disorders you can have. Obviously, Sultan had an extreme case of it”, said Jason.

Kosen was born in a farming family in southeastern Turkey and made a World Record in September 2009 of being the tallest man in the world. Jason said that if they would not have conducted the surgery then Kosen would have been growing. His growth hormone would have turned into gigantism and have become quite dangerous for his life.
