The remains, which have been dated to 31,000 years old, mark the oldest evidence for amputation yet discovered. And the prehistoric “surgery” could show that humans were making medical advances much earlier than previously thought, according to the study published Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2022 in the journal Nature.

Dr Melandri Vlok, yang memeriksa kerangka tersebut mengatakan kaki kiri kerangka "sangat jelas" diamputasi. Bahkan, hasil analisis para arkeolog menunjukkan bahwa individu yang diamputasi tersebut dirawat oleh komunitasnya bertahun-tahun setelah operasi dilakukan.

Pemeriksaan kerangka purba yang rinciannya diterbitkan dalam jurnal Nature, mengindikasikan operasi amputasi kaki tersebut terjadi saat orang itu masih kecil.

Pertumbuhan dan penyembuhan tulang kaki pascaoperasi menunjukkan bahwa orang itu telah hidup antara enam sampai sembilan tahun setelah amputasi. Kemungkinan dia meninggal pada usia belasan tahun atau awal 20-an tahun.
