20 Teen Makes Medical Discovery
Tony Hansberry II is only 15, but he has already made a contribution to medical science. He developed a new way of sewing up women after they have had a hysterectomy, an operation where surgeons remove a woman's uterus.
Hansberry's discovery stands to reduce the risk of complications women can have from the surgery and simplify the tricky procedure for less-seasoned surgeons. It will have a positive affect on the lives of many women since hysterectomies are the second most common surgery, after Cesarean section deliveries, among women in the United States. And one in three women in the United States has had a hysterectomy by age 60.
