The Vox Box

The Craziest Operation Ever

From Yahoo News:

I have heard some strange medical stories, but this is nothing less than staggering. Apparently, a blind man from Ireland can now see as a result of an operation where "doctors inserted his son's tooth in his eye."

Yes, you read that correctly. "The technique, pioneered in Italy in the 1960s, involves creating a support for an artificial cornea from the patient's own tooth and the surrounding bone."

More details after the jump.

« Back to The Vox Box

In 2006, then-editor Steve Smith of The Spokesman-Review had the idea of starting a publication for an often forgotten audience: teenagers. The Vox Box was a continuation of the Vox, an all-student staffed newspaper published by The Spokesman-Review. High school student journalists who staffed the Vox made all content decisions as they learn about the trade of journalism. This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at http://voxxiez.blogspot.com.
