He is the first world-class master who visited China after the three-year pandemic. People dedicated to research always leave some legacies to the world and their accomplishments can still strike a chord with thousands of people after hundreds of years. They can even communicate with later generations through their masterpieces. They are truly the great doctors in the world. He took a flight from Bologna on May 13th and arrived in Guangzhou late at 11 p.m on May 14th. To save costs for Chinese hospitals, he chose to fly for 15 hours and waited for another 8 hours to transfer at Dubai. He declined our proposal to book a hotel room close to the Dubai International Airport. Starting from May 15th, he began his work spanning 2 weeks as a visiting professor in Dongguan and Zhengzhou.On May 19th, his visit as a visiting professor in Donguan People’s Hospital came to an end. On May 21th , he took a flight to Zhengzhou to visit Zhengzhou Orthopedics Hospital.The activities in the hospitals include outpatient consultation, ward rounds, case discussion, surgical guidance, giving lectures of department management and giving public classes. Every day he worked with a high level of intensity. He barely ate dinner. He revised his presentation again and again even when he was on the plane. The day before he left Dongguan for Zhengzhou, he almost stayed up all night to make preparations for the public classes next day. His love and passion for work have greatly inspired Chinese hospitals and facilitated the development of the specialty of spine tumor in China. He has collected around 2020 cases of spine tumor so far, ranking the first in the world. He published the most papers on the subject of spine tumor. He is the cofounder of the WBB surgical system and spearheaded the development of spine tumor. He and his colleagues designed the flow chart for treating bone metastases of the spine. This made the treatment for bone metastases of the spine simpler and more clearly. His eyes gleamed when he spoke of the treatment concept of spine tumor. No other hospital can be more fascinating than the IRCCS Rizzoli Orthopedic Institute. It gives hope for life to patients who are in the abyss at the darkest hours of their lives. He is Prof. Boriani, the world-class master for spine tumor from the famous IRCCS Rizzoli Orthopedic Institute in Bologna. I don’t believe in superficial friendship. I only believe in timely assistance. As an old saying in China goes, “We need timely assistance instead of icing on the cake.” Those who visit my beloved motherland in this special summer of 2023 despite the ongoing pandemic are the true friends of China. At first sight, you feel like an old friend of mine.
