Go to the frontiers of surgery, where technology and skill defeat birth defects that used to kill, and the mysteries of the brain are slowly being unraveled.
In the past few decades, incredible advances in technology and revolutionary discoveries have made modern surgeons capable of life-saving acts that were inconceivable in the past. MIRACLE BABIES introduces two physicians on the frontiers of medicine and follows them as they race to save lives that, only a few years ago, would surely have been lost.
The congenital defects of newborn infants are among the most difficult problems to correct, but with the aid of inventions like the Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation machine, Dr. Marleta Reynolds can save children who would otherwise succumb to deadly heart and lung ailments. MIRACLE BABIES follows Dr. Reynolds as she races to save the life of a baby born with a fatal lung disease.
And in THE LASER'S EDGE, go deep inside the human brain with Dr. Leonard Cerullo, a pioneer in the use of laser surgery to remove brain tumors. Astonishing footage of a real operation shows the dramatic, delicate procedure that makes it possible to go where physical tools cannot reach, and bring a life back from the brink.
It's a riveting portrait of the cutting edge of medicine.
