Orthopedic Insanity

An orthopedic surgeon in Hawaii apparently started an operation only to find after he had opened the patient that he didn’t have the titanium rods necessary for the surgery. The solution of course was to cut apart a sterile stainless steel surgical screwdriver (say that ten times fast) and use the screwdriver shaft as a replacement rod.

At least he can cope with the stress of the suit by hanging out on the beach.
