The Barry Askren Memorial Branch Library will host a book signing with Dr. Ajay Seth, author of the book, Rewired, and his patient Melissa Loomis.
Due to a raccoon bite, Loomis needed an arm amputation to save her life. Dr. Ajay Seth preformed a groundbreaking surgery which allowed Melissa to feel her prosthetic hand and move it as if it were her own just by thinking. Dr. Seth is a board certified orthopedic hand and upper extremity surgeon in private practice in North Canton, Ohio. He wrote the book Rewired to tell the story of this amazing medical miracle. Both of them will be in attendance at this program, and copies of the book will be available to purchase.
No registration is required for this free program.
