Epic Win Of The Day: 14-Year-Old Surgeon…And He’s Black!

I know some people are going to get mad, because I am highlighting this young man. This is for the rest of us that are feeling super hype! Oh, wait, you may not be so hype because you never even read about this kid! But, I got a “tip” about him because he wasn’t getting enough love in the media. Lil Mouse makes headlines and this kid gets buried. Anyway, I’m not capable properly articulating how this 9th Grader is making strides in hysterectomies. Crazy, huh?

A Jacksonville researcher has developed a way of sewing up patients after hysterectomies that stands to reduce the risk of complications and simplify the tricky procedure for less-seasoned surgeons.
Oh, and he’s 14 years old.
Feel free to read that again.
Tony Hansberry II is a ninth-grader who, as it happens, will be presenting his findings today before an auditorium filled with doctors just like any of his board-certified – and decades older – colleagues would. He would say he was following in the footsteps of “Doogie Howser, M.D.” – if he weren’t too young to have heard of the television show.
Instead, he says that his remarkable accomplishments are merely steps toward his ultimate goal of becoming a University of Florida-trained neurosurgeon.
“I just want to help people and be respected, knowing that I can save lives,” said Tony, the son of a registered nurse mom and an African Methodist Episcopal church pastor dad.

This boy gets the slow clap!

But this…is exactly how I feel!

    That’s what’s up little man. It’s scary how intelligent some individuals truly are.

  • Escobar

    It really doesn’t do the world any good when Lil Mouse or Lil Poopy make headlines for the ignorant shi- they still do, and this dude just evolved a surgical procedure at the age of 14.

    Illseed, I honestly don’t see why anyone would hate on this. This is an astounding article. Throw my socks out to you, guy.

    • 7yoyo7

      Let’s forget the fact that this “news” dates back to 2009…..
      AND the kid was honored last year…..
      AND THIS KID IS NOW 18 years old!!!

      WTF Illseed??!!

      • Escobar

        If that’s the case, I understand, but at least he was recognized for an honorable skill rather than being 14 and banging gangs, holding guns and dealing drugs.

        It’s something you can truly be proud of instead of the common article you read on AHH, MTO, SOHH, WSHH or any other blogs. This is honorable. That’s all, guy.

    Dont’ sleep…our ancestors were doing brain surgery, “c-sections” in ancient Kemet (Egypt). Hats off to the little bro…he reminds me of “Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story”

  • Nene

    This isn’t surprising we as black people are very smart. Black people are civilization. We started it all and will eventually finish it all. Africa ani’t called the motherland for nothing. Watch “Hidden Colors”.
