Although already familiar to many, Chen was put back in the spotlight on March 4 by performing a six-hour lung transplant for a man suffering bilateral bronchiectasis and respiratory failure at China-Japan Friendship Hospital, just a day before the opening of the annual session of the top legislature.

Many online commentators praised Chen's dedication to his profession, especially during such a busy and important trip.

Chen said that hundreds of patients from across the country come to Wuxi in Jiangsu to receive transplants at his hospital. To save them the journey, Chen and his team initiated a project with the Beijing hospital to set up a lung transplant center where similar operations can be carried out.

"The opening of green channels for long-distance organ transportation is an achievement that I am most proud of as a deputy to the NPC," Chen said in an interview on March 8. He added that overwork for a couple of days and nights is nothing for him once he sees patients breathe again and able to go home.
