'Injury Time' with Dr E - January 11


I hope the festive holidays treated you well wherever you were in this beautiful planet of ours called earth! May I wish you everything good that you have ever wished yourself.

And remember: The tragedy of life does not lie in not reaching for a goal; the tragedy of life lies in not having goals to reach for. It is not a disgrace not to reach the stars; but it is a disgrace not to have stars to reach for.

HERE IS THE LIST OF SWALLOWS INJURIES:

1. George Hummel.
He suffered a recurrence of an old fracture.

Diagnosis: Small horizontal fracture on the middle third of right tibia (leg bone).
Operation: Synthetic Bone Matrix Protein (BMP) used to fill the hole created by the fracture.
