In this photo taken Jan. 13, 2015, Pamela Shavaun Scott holds a 3D printer model of her skull after her brain tumor was removed from behind her eye, in Morro Bay, Calif. Doctor after doctor said removing the tumor causing Pamela Shavaun Scott's unrelenting headaches would require cutting open the top of her skull and pushing aside her brain. Then one doctor offered a startling shortcut _ operating through her eyelid to get into the hard-to-reach center of the head. A big benefit: "We have to saw off much less of your head."
