A British brain surgeon used a 30 DIY drill to carry out a successful operation on a fully conscious patient.
A British brain surgeon used a 30 DIY drill to carry out a successful operation on a fully conscious patient.

Dr. Henry Marsh, 58, had travelled to Ukraine to help patients so did not have his normal equipment on him.

Instead, he used a Bosch cordless drill, but halfway through the operation to remove the tumour from Marian Dolishny's head, the power ran out.

However, Dr. Marsh - who ordinarily works at London's St George's Hospital - was able the complete the operation and save a life.

He later said: "I'm not recommending that we should all use Bosch do-it-yourself drills in England, but it shows how with improvisation you can achieve a lot."
