An amazing story from Birmingham Childrens Hospital

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity,
and I'm not sure about the former.

The article doesn't say why they had to use her own leg bones.
I wonder if there might be some alternative, such as ceramics, that they could have used for the backbone and give her a chance of recovering her full legs.

Either way it's a remarkable bit of surgery.

At present i think artificial replacements ,other than bone from the body, all stand at least a small chance of being eventually rejected. Possibly it might be replaced , but i would probably be even more dofficult than this operation. Maybe in the future a completely reject-proof material will be developed
