Cool story, but i get the feeling this thread will devolve into a healthcare flamewar...

Remember, humans outnumber orangutans 700000:1.

We're not endangered.
We can afford to cull out herd.

Can I play the piano any more?

Of course you can!

Well I couldn't before!

That's a great story to read first thing. Great docs, great people and a great outcome.
Good luck, Sally.

No, it's a female orangutan and they're referred to as Gingrapes.

Wait a minute, subby. Dr. Zaius wasn't a medical doctor, he was more akin to a 'Doctor of Divinity', or perhaps along the lines of a PhD equivalent.

For some reason the link won't post on Fark. Just google 'Love advice dr zaius'.

TFA:

Dr. Monique Spillman, gynecologic oncologist

Dr. Kian Behbakht, gynecologic oncologist

Dr. Henry Galan, maternal and fetal specialist

Dr. Ruben Alvero, reproductive endocrinology and infertility specialist

Dr. Julia Embry, gynecologic oncology fellow

Dr. Geoffrey Lane, anesthesiologist

Dr. Mark Thompson, anesthesiologist


I'm going to assume that it was a stroke.

Came to say this. There are plenty of orange-haired women living in trailer parks and preening behind their registers at Walmart who have giant infected fibroids and who will never get this level of comprehensive surgical care.

Then again, I'd say we as a culture derive more positive utility from Sally the ape than we do from a Walmart cashier. Walmart cashiers are fungible. Orangutans are endangered. And have better hygeine.

Anybody else annoyed to the point of nearly being enraged that you had to scroll through half the article just to find out WTF was wrong with her in the first place? I HATE "story-telling" journalism. You are a reporter, not farking Herman Mellville. Get to the point and do it quickly.

That was awesome. It's stories like these that make me wanna become a doctor or lawyer or something useful. Then I realize that stories like these are about 0.001% of all cases, and I get depressed and stick with moving 1s and 0s around.

Sir Terry Pratchett said something akin to the following: When you see what's being done to orangutans, you want to slit your throat... Or some other peoples'.
