New Episode of Breakthrough Medicine Airs This Weekend

The newest episode of our Breakthrough Medicine series, Mind Over Matter: Extracting A Deadly Brain Tumor, will air Saturday, June 30, at 7 p.m., and Sunday, July 1, at 5:30 p.m. on WPLG-TV (Local Channel 10).

In this episode you will watch a patient diagnosed with a glioblastoma, one of the most deadly forms of brain cancer, remain completely conscious while doctors perform brain surgery to remove his tumor. Experience this precise surgery in which the patient must stay awake to protect his brain function, including the finest networks responsible for language, and learn about the revolutionary brain tumor vaccine offered at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center that is only available at a handful of medical centers nationwide.

To preview the episode, visit us on YouTube.

The Breakthrough Medicine series provides viewers the opportunity to go inside our university-based health system and share in the remarkable breakthroughs being made on our medical campus each day.

Please share this with your family and friends and be sure to tune in.
