In an ultra-modern, high-tech facility for surgical planning in Leipzig, masses of collated data on patients are converted into 3-D images of the patients' heads. Doctors can remove skin and muscles and even parts of the brain from the virtual image in order to get a better view of a tumor inside.

Forward surgical teams are spread throughout forward operating bases in Afghanistan. They are the first line of hospital care service members and locals receive during an emergency. Air Force Staff Sgt. Alana Ingram takes us to Forward Operating Base Sharana as their FST brings in a pair of casualties.
A groundbreaking surgical technique has been used to rebuild the leg of a woman who suffered a bad break in a hit-and-run accident. Diane Stuttard had been told she would have to have her leg amputated after 11 operations failed to fix her bones. But in a world first, surgeons used her own stem cells to repair the damage - and lengthen the shattered limb.
http://www.laparoscopynw.com At the Institute For Laparoscopic Surgery, we offer a variety of minimally invasive weight loss and general surgeries including kidney and gallbladder. This video demonstrates that in the hands of experienced surgeons performing a left adrenalectomy, the SILS (Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery) technique is applicable to complex and uncommon cases.
