Are you kidding me?

I'm fairly sure he had his surgery in the usa and even if he had it in finland there is no way a surgeon in the 21st century does that on an orthopedic case.

If the organism in Pekkas hip really is e coli it is because the hip is right by the anus. E coli is a bacterium found in the gut.
