Youngest Surgeon of The World:The Seven Year-Old Surgeon
Hello, friends.How you all are doing?I hope you all are just doing awesome.But sorry for our late posts, friends.We are going through a tough exam time actually,being the reason behind our late posts..But anyway, after getting through the incredible news of this young boy named, Akrit Jaswal,I just could not help myself to get off the study table and share this unbelievable incident with you.
So, about, Akrit Jaswal, who has been very reputably famed as the world's youngest physician, in fact as the youngest seven year old surgeon despite ever being attending a medical school.Akrit Jaswal (born April 23, 1993) is an Indian adolescent,a Hindu Rajput of Jaswal clan from Punjab,who gained fame for performing surgery at the age of seven on a 8 year old girl whose fingers were fused together after being burnt.
According to his mother Raksha Kumari Jaswal, Akrit was an early starter, skipped the toddler stage and started walking. He started speaking in his 10th month and was reading Shakespeare at the age of 5 and developed a passion for science and anatomy at an early age.
Then very interestingly doctors at local hospitals took notice and started allowing him to observe surgeries when he was 6 years old.Inspired by what he saw, Akrit read everything he could on the topic.
When an impoverished family heard about his amazing abilities, they asked if he would operate on their daughter for free. Her surgery was a celebrated success.
After the surgery, Akrit was hailed as a medical genius in India. Neighbors and strangers flocked to him for advice and treatment. At age 11, Akrit was admitted to a Punjab University. He's the youngest student ever to attend an Indian university. That same year, he was also invited to London's famed Imperial College to exchange ideas with scientists on the cutting edge of medical research.
Akrit says he has millions of medical ideas, but he's currently focused on developing a cure for cancer. "I've developed a concept called oral gene therapy on the basis of my research and my theories", he says, "I'm quite dedicated towards working on this mechanism."However, his work towards a cure for cancer was criticised by British doctors and researchers since they claim his understanding on the topic was vague.
But friends, I think he would make his research success full, after all he is genius borne gifted.
Growing up, Akrit says he used to see cancer patients lying on the side of the road because they couldn't afford treatment or hospitals had no space for them. Now, he wants to use his intellect to ease their suffering. "[I've been] going to hospitals since the age of 6, so I have seen firsthand people suffering from pain," he says. "I get very sad, and so that's the main motive of my passion about medicine, my passion about cancer."
Currently, Akrit is working toward a bachelor's degree in zoology, botany and chemistry. Someday, he hopes to continue his studies at Harvard University.
He possesses books such as Gray's Anatomy, and textbooks on surgery, anaesthesia, anatomy, physiology, cancer, and others. Akrit claims to have mastered them with his daily habit of studying for an hour.
But, Oh my God friends, for me he is just another Albert Einstien took birth in this world to erase the sufferings of the ill ones.
In his spare time, Akrit enjoys playing and watching cricket.
I am just waiting to get the most updates about any further researches of this young little scientist, and of course share with you all.
So, dear friends, till our next post don't forget to stay healthy and passionate and keep visiting our blog.
