This list of surgical innovations was inspired by the life changing surgery of Christine Honeycutt that saved her face from the rare Parry Romberg Syndrome.

Parry Romberg Syndrome is a genetic disorder that causes half of the affected person's face to slowly deteriorate. Dr. John Siebert, M.D. performed the surgery on young Christine, and although there is no proven treatment for Parry Romberg Syndrome, he remains confident that his procedure is highly effective.

The innovations in surgery are growing exponentially and we can't wait to see what the future holds for life-changing medical discoveries!
