A Room Full of Miracles

laparoscopic surgeryDid you see the last launch of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket? It seems like a miracle. This machine functioned almost perfectly, placed 24 satellites into orbit and safely landed two of its boosters. The two side boosters touched down at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, next door to Kennedy Space Center. The central booster just missed its target, a SpaceX drone ship stationed hundreds of miles off the Florida coast. You have got to respect these guys. A decade ago, this would seem impossible.

It does not get the same type of coverage, but the collection of scientific, medical and engineering advances found in a hospital’s laparoscopic surgical suite is a comparable miracle. A surgeon of the 50’s, 60’s or 70’s would be amazed that his successors can do gallbladder surgery in the morning and send the patient home that night. It happens all the time, just as those launches are starting to do. Please look back on our February, 2018 article, “A Room Full of Miracles.”
