World's Tallest Man Stretches Out—Over Eight Feet—for Needed Gamma Knife Surgery
Date:8/26/2010

egular job, but he has been able to earn a living through TV show appearances and other media opportunities.

Despite the challenges of living with acromegaly, Mr. Kosen is optimistic about his prospects and derives a certain amount of pride from his world record setting dimensions.

"I won the title of the world's tallest man in September 2009 from the previous holder Xiu Xung from China, who is 7'9"," he notes. "It appears that I am still growing and have grown a couple of centimeters over the last year. I was nervous and excited about my Gamma Knife treatment—I had never heard of Gamma Knife before because I am from a very small village in Turkey. I just want to live a regular life, so anything that can help me I'm willing to try. My hopes and optimism have kept me going through some very difficult periods in my life, and it is with the same optimism that I take on my next challenges."
