National Geographic Channel successfully concluded the first live broadcast of brain surgery from University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio.
Patient Greg Grindley, seen above waving to camera at the end of the broadcast, is now resting comfortably after surgeons implanted electrodes deep within his brain to control Parkinson’s-related tremors.
Near the completion of the successful surgery, lead neurosurgeon Dr. Jonathan Miller commented, “I couldn’t be happier with what we could accomplish for him and his family. It’s great seeing the effect tonight, but it will be even greater to see the benefit he will receive from this ten years from now. The surgery set the stage for the brain to heal itself. The brain has the ability to do so many amazing things.”
