AliExpress Spinal Surgery

Hey. This page is more than 6 years old! The content here is probably outdated, so bear that in mind. If this post is part of a series, there may be a more recent post that supersedes this one.

I have just been shopping around on AliExpress for some bits-and-bobs for my DIY in-car screen. The image below flashed into the adverts banner. Ya, I was intrigued … so down that clickbait rabbit hole, I went.

I suppose the idea that surgical tools are being made in China is not so odd – everything else is made there – but the idea of someone (a surgeon?) sitting on AliExpress and buying something for a dollar that they are going to stick (and leave?) in my spine. That is odd.
