Sur­geon Stitches Up Beloved Teddy Bear

Reader's Digest Asia Pacific - - Bonus Read -

Neu­ro­sur­geon Dr Daniel McNeely has won fans from around the world af­ter tweet­ing about per­form­ing ‘surgery’ on eight-year-old Jackson McKie’s teddy bear – be­fore re­mov­ing a cyst from Jackson’s brain for his chronic con­di­tion.

The Twit­ter cap­tion read, “Pa­tient asks if I can also fix teddy bear just be­fore be­ing put off to sleep … how could I say no?”

Although it was the neu­ro­sur­geon’s first time op­er­at­ing on a stuffed an­i­mal, the teddy bear’s small tear in his arm was ex­pertly mended and Jackson was ‘tick­led pink’ to have his furry friend by his side in re­cov­ery.
