2018 Conference

WTFix 2018 Speaker: Doug Lindsay

Meet #WTFix 2018 speaker Doug Lindsay. Doug got sick at age 21 and spent the next 11 years bed bound until he developed the surgery that fixed him. During those years, he could walk only 50 feet and stand for about the length of a commercial break. Doug adapted a long-forgotten animal model of adrenal gland surgery from the 1920s into a modern human surgery so surgeons could treat his rare autonomic-adrenal condition. He bet his life on the operating table, and it paid off!
