I was reading an article from the BBC. A Professor Laurent Lantieri replaced the upper portion of a man's face, in two different surgeries and only in a time span of two weeks. Imagine the talent of this man, to put a man's face back together with donor tissue. I find the extremes of modern day science and medicine a "miracle" in itself. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7987746.stm
I have a cousin who got his finger caught up in a car engine. To repair the tip, they sowed his finger inside his chest. A month later, the muscle had grown out enough to apply his replacement skin, they grew from scratch. Tony's finger looks perfect. He has minor nerve damage and that's it.
Got any amazing science or health care stories you'd care to share?
