Many of us had the misconception that some illnesses or diseases couldn't be treated since medical professionals had failed to effectively treat them. Some people also hold the view that no sickness is incurable, only that its cause has not yet been discovered.
But many medical professionals went above and beyond to accomplish something amazing. While some of them horribly failed and some perished throughout the process, others were successful in reaching their objectives.
The first medical professional to effectively treat deafness with 3D printer implants is a South African physician by the name of Professor Mashudu Tshifularo. Mashudu Tshifularo of the Steve Biko University Hospital in Pretoria and his team successfully carried out the reconstructive surgery using the printed implants, which replace the ossicles, the hammer (malleus), the anvil (incus), and the stapes (stapes).
The man obtained the implants, which are less expensive than traditional titanium plants, despite being born with a middle ear problem and a history of unsuccessful surgeries.
In addition to being a lay preacher and a published author, Mr. Tshifularo was born on June 18, 1964 in the isolated Venda, South Africa, town of Mbahelar. After completing his studies at the University of Natal, he started working as a physician at Hospital Tshilidzini in 1990.
This serves as a true motivation for both South Africa and all of Africa. Mr. Tshifularo demonstrated that no illness could prevent someone from reaching a significant milestone. He demonstrated how Africans were capable of using their wisdom to do things that had never been done before.
