3D VERTEBRA REPLACEMENT RE-ENABLES BOY to WALK

How technology has increasingly benefited people today!

Recently, a boy in China had a vertebrae replacement, that will enable him to walk again. According to Business Insider 

The boy who had received the bone had acquired the injury through heading a ball in soccer. What had been believed to be an injury, had turned out to be a rare bone cancer. The tumor had been growing inside his second vertebra which then meant that it needed some form of replacement. The boy, Minghao received an artificial, 3D vertebra replacement, which will at one point of time enable him to walk again.
