    Post I need help to eliminate wordiness.

    Edit each sentence to eliminate wordiness

    1.By the seventh century, the Greeks’ medical writings might have vanished entirely.
    2.Luckily, Islamic scholars decided that these writings were worth the trouble of preserving.
    3.Ninth-century caliphs of Baghdad actually took it upon themselves to establish a translation center where Greek scientific manuscripts were translated into Arabic.
    4.Just simply keeping these manuscripts in use and ascertaining that copies were available would have been a remarkable achievement for the medieval Islamic world.
    5.But Arab scholars were not content just to study and contemplate information that had already been discovered.
    6.Arab thinkers of the ninth, tenth, and eleventh centuries made many original contributions to the field of medical science.
    7.Al-Razi, a man known to Westerners as Rhazes, succeeded in treating patients suffering from such diseases as scabies, measles, and kidney infections.
    8.Ibn Sina, who was a physician whose name is known in the West as Avicenna, was perhaps the greatest of all the medieval Arab physicians.
    9.His book Canon of Medicine was a publication that was still being consulted by doctors in the nineteenth century.
    10.Modern patients today have many reasons to feel that they owe a debt of gratitude to these medieval Islamic scholars.
