A Missouri surgeon paralyzed in 2010 is continuing to operate on his patients — from a stand-up wheelchair. Dr. Ted Rummel experienced a blood-filled cyst on his spine burst, leaving him unable to move any part of his body below the waist.
He is paralyzed from the waist down after his illness. He now performs procedures on patients’ hands, elbows, feet, knees and ankles from his sitting wheelchair. To operate on shoulders, he gets strapped into an upright chair.
Even that doesn’t stop him from saving people’s lives. He is RESILIENT. He is a great example…when your gift, purpose and service knows NO limitation or excuses.
He realized his life wasn’t over. I hope this inspires someone immersed in self-pity feeling depressed and defeated or thinking their life is over because of a setback. Credit :Simone Myrie
