Most of us agree that health is our most cherished treasure. Medicine has come a long way in the 21st century alone. We have advanced machines that doctors use for surgery, successful organ transplants, better cancer treatments, and improved plastic surgeries. Some medical procedures are so astounding that we call them “medical wonders.”
The subreddit r/medizzy has 363k members who share incredible medical cases that might surprise even experts. From rare conditions that make you wonder what’s possible to surgeries that show how amazing modern medicine is, this is a place to learn about the human body and the challenges doctors face. Take a journey through these enlightening, inspiring, and at times astonishing posts from the group. It’s all about medicine here!
James Harrison The “Man With The Golden Arm”
We’re learning about the human body faster than ever before. Back in 1950, it took about 50 years for our medical knowledge to double, but now it only takes 73 days. Still, there’s a lot we don’t understand about how our bodies work. For example, scientists think there are about 4,000 kinds of bacteria in our gut, but they’re not sure what 70% of them do. We’re also not certain why we dream, have different blood types, or why each person has unique fingerprints. In 2021, scientists even found a new body part that helps us chew our food.

That’s why it’s not unexpected for doctors to still be puzzled by certain medical mysteries. However, due to the ever-expanding knowledge today, they also continue to solve once perplexing cases. We’ll share a couple of stories about medical wonders, or perhaps they could even be described as miracles.

Here’s another one. At the age of forty, Ruby Graupera-Cassimiro had just undergone an entirely routine C-section, delivering a gorgeous baby girl. However, as the medical team transported her to the recovery room, she lost consciousness. Unexpectedly, Ruby, now a mother of two, experienced a severe cardiac arrest.
She had life-threatening heartbeats for more than two hours. The scariest part was when Ruby’s heart was beating but not pumping blood, and doctors did CPR compressions for 45 minutes straight. After around two hours, the doctors knew things were not looking good. They let her family come in to say goodbye. They went back to the waiting area, along with a few nurses, and prayed hard for a miracle. The doctors stopped trying to revive her and were getting ready to declare her as passed away. However, without any medicine or CPR, Ruby’s heart started to beat by itself for the first time in two hours. Ruby not only survived but is also in excellent health. It’s almost as if this never happened. Doctors called it a miracle.

It is definitely true that medicine has come a long way. Just a few years ago, it would have been hard to think that technology could help paralyzed people walk again using exoskeletons, that so many would use social media for information, or that a supercomputer like Watson would help doctors make medical decisions. Technology has changed medicine and healthcare in ways that sounded like science fiction not long ago. Medical students need to stay updated with the latest trends and learn quickly because even shortly after completing their studies, much of what they know might already be outdated.
