3.Boy recovered after orthopedic decapitation
    Jordan Taylor separated his skull from his vertebrae in a car accident, which means that there was no connection between the bones of the neck and the head, "orthopedic decapitation“, as it is called and Jordan had 1% chance for survival. Jordan's mother says at one time she knew of at least 20 churches that were praying for her son.

4.Wife shot by husband got a new face

5.    Culp can talk, smile, smell and taste her food again. Culp's husband, Thomas, shot her in 2004 then turned the gun on himself. He went to prison for seven years. The blast shattered her nose, cheeks, the roof of her mouth and an eye. She needed a tube into her windpipe to breathe. Only her upper eyelids, forehead, lower lip and chin were left.

6.She endured 30 operations. Parts of her ribs were taken to make cheekbones and an upper jaw was made from one of her leg bones. Still, she was unable to eat solid food, breathe on her own, or smell. Then, Dr. Maria Siemionow led a team of doctors who replaced 80 percent of Culp's face with bone, muscles, nerves, skin and blood vessels from another woman, in a 22-hour operation. Only 3 more face transplants were made all over the world before hers.

7.Paraplegic man suffered a spider bite and started walking again

8.    David Blancarte, 21 years ago was almost killed in a motorcycle accident. He finally lived but he was paralyzed in both legs. 2 years ago, he was bitten by a brown recluse spider and was hospitalized for and spent 8 months in physical therapy, where a nurse noticed a spasm in one of his legs and run some tests. Five days later David was walking again.

10.Near-vegetative man was back to life after stimulation electrodes were implanted into his skull
A man in a near-vegetative state was able to speak and eat again. The severely brain-injured patient, now 38 years old, was unable to communicate, swallow or make coordinate movements for six years, before a revolutionary therapy with which, doctors revived him from this minimally conscious state (MCS).

11.They implanted electrodes to his scull to stimulate a deep-lying and undamaged part of his brain. He can now feed himself, brush his hair and recognize and talk to his parents and doctors, after his treatment, which is already used to treat Parkinson's disease and some neurological disorder (like Tourrett's Syndrome). It is thought to be the hope for many people with similar problems.
