DVR Alert: New Medical Miracle Specials to Air on WKYC
This special, the next in a continuing set of Cleveland Clinic programs, will examine thoracic surgery. You'll be introduced to the Clinic's thoracic surgery unit, which deals with the illnesses of the chest area, as Monica follows a young mother suffering from cystic fibrosis. She is just one of the patients whose lives have been helped.
Then on Thursday, December 6 at 7:30 pm, viewers can tune in for "Medical Miracles: Innovative Surgery, Rapid Recovery." This 30-minute Cleveland Clinic special focuses on minimally invasive surgeries and the benefits they provide over traditional surgeries. For example, a robot assists a cardiovascular surgeon to repair a heart valve with only four small incisions. This show covers procedures at the forefront of surgical technology.
