KY Interesting Facts

Wow! The University of Louisville Health Sciences Center has had some major medical accomplishments!  In 2006 they helped develop a highly effective vaccine against cervical cancer.  In 2001 they had the first fully self-contained artificial heart transplant surgery and in 1999, the first successful hand transplant. They are also accredited for the first Emergency Room in the world in 1911.

What I found to be another very interesting and amazing in our little town in Vermont...we have an Orthopedic Surgeon that specializes in hand surgery.  He graduated from the University of Louisville School of Medicine, in 1999.  Lucky us!
