Science is fascinating and so is the world of medicine. Doctors are evolving and revolutionizing medicine and surgeries with the improved technology. Presently, doctors can transform anything physically and can cure most diseases.
Just to think of that a few centuries ago, when we didn’t have the same intellectual insights and technological excellence as we have today, any minor injury or harm to the human body could easily result in death. Surgeons are now successfully undertaking difficult medical procedures that would have been considered impossible or magical earlier.
We can find numerous instances where successful medical surgeries will make you exclaim Wow! But some surgeries and medical procedures are no less than medical miracles. These successful medical surgeries will make you appreciate the good doctors more than ever and believe in miracles.

3. Metal Model
Kstrina Burgess was only 17 when she got hit in a 70mph car crash. Even though she survived, she had a broken back, neck, and couple of more injuries. The doctors had to use 11 metal rods, plenty of pins and screws to make her stand upright again. She is as good as a runway model now.

We all know that one cannot survive without a heart but D’Zhana Simmons proved us wrong! Simmons’s heart surgery was unsuccessful the first time and she had to wait for the next transplant.
