We're happy to announce that we have teamed up with National Geographic for a television event unlike anything you've ever seen before: Brain Surgery Live With Mental Floss.
Premiering later this month, Brain Surgery Live With Mental Floss is a two-hour event that will take viewers inside the operating room at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio to see a deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery performed live, as it happens. It’s an up-close and personal look at a revolutionary medical procedure that is changing lives. DBS surgery helps treat essential tremor and Parkinson's disease, and it is performed with a fully awake patient who is able to speak and answer questions throughout the procedure.
Bryant Gumbel is hosting the television event, with neurosurgeon Dr. Rahul Jandial and science journalist Cara Santa Maria providing additional insight. Produced by Leftfield Pictures, Brain Surgery Live With Mental Floss will be a celebration of our amazing brains and the strides science has made to better understand how this miracle of an organ works.
Tune in Sunday, October 25 at 9 p.m. EST to the National Geographic Channel to catch Brain Surgery Live With Mental Floss.
