The Editor's Corner

Brave New World

...Now, I fully respect the rights of others to have opinions different from mine, and you can call me old-fashioned but, to my mind at least, the thought of any kind of bargain-priced, do-it-yourself health care is terrifying. The very idea conjures up memories of an old vaudeville routine in which the comedian decides to save money by doing his own appendectomy. How hard can it be, right? But in researching this column, I found an account of Dr. Leonid Rogozov, the Russian surgeon who did indeed successfully perform an appendectomy on himself in 1961. He was the only physician at a remote Russian Antarctic research base, and as the polar winter rolled in, outside help was a hopeless prospect. It was do it yourself or die. That is roughly the level of motivation I would need to perform any skilled health-care procedure on myself...
