- Program Description
On the afternoon of June 4, 1996, in New York City's Central Park, a young woman was brutally attacked, her head beaten severely. She went into a coma. Two blocks from the hospital where paramedics rushed the victim, a young neurosurgeon, Dr. Ghajar, heard about her case. He was determined to save her life with new methods for treating serious head injuries -- techniques that are counter to conventional medical wisdom. NOVA captures this controversial revolution launched by Dr. Ghajar and his colleagues. With unprecedented access, NOVA goes on call with Dr. Ghajar to capture not only an unfolding coma case, but his efforts to transform his field of medicine.
