Luckily I have never needed to have surgery, but I know there have to be some jiu jitsu players out there that have needed operations, particularly with the knees and such. Ick. Well, good news, scientists are working on developing screws made from silk which will eventually dissolve, means less surgeries and hopefully/theoretically will mean less time off the mats. Hooray!
Check it out and let me know what you think. Have a great day everyone!
