the fastest surgery record?!?!
but today i had watch it all LIVE...
and i had to slap my face to believe that it is REAL..
you know what?
it's really amazing how fast the surgeon work on such small eyes.
did you know how much patient he had operate on today?
take a guess.
actually he had operate 21 patients today!
and all finished by 2.30pm, in three different hospitals!
after the operations, the doctor asked me, "can anyone do 21 brain surgeries or ortophaedics surgeries in 7 hours?"
"only opthalmologist can do so many surgeries in a day!" he added with a chuckle.
i guess he is right.
brain surgery usually takes such a long, long time (you had to crack the skull open first before u reach the brain, right?)
same as orthopaedic operations, which really need patience and strength.
but no matter what department and speciality, i guess they all had their own advantages and uniqueness.
after all, they had to work on a patient as a whole human being, not as the brain, the eye or the bone, right?
