Neurosurgeon Goes Viral For 'Operating' On A Young Patient's Teddy Bear 😍

By Dana Levinson

Jackson McKie was being wheeled into surgery when he asked his surgeon for a special favor. Dr. P. Daniel McNeely couldn't say no to his 8-year-old patient.

What was the favor, you might ask?

Jackson suffers from a rare disorder called hydrocephalus, which is a buildup of fluid in the deep cavities of the brain. Dr. McNeely was replacing a surgical shunt that helps to drain Jackson's cerebrospinal fluid.

Little Jackson wanted the armpit of his teddy bear fixed and Dr. McNeely obliged, snapping photos of himself performing the "surgery." He even used some of the leftover stitches from Jackson's surgery on his teddy bear.
