The Evolution of M.D.

Social fever is something even doctors can’t prevent. As social media has evolved to play
a greater role in our lives, we've seen how different industries utilize it. Lifesaving healers
have now joined us in the sharing obsession. 
 
Today, surgeons are displaying their miracle work in real time. This new ritual has catapulted hospitals into the spotlight, and it seems to be spreading. 
 
We applaud the medical field for introducing a truly new way to break into the social world.
This may be the beginning of numerous shared operations that could help educate potential patients and fellow doctors alike.
