Deliver Your News to the World’s Brain Surgery Documentary Introduces Challenging Specialties


Recent developments in crime stories produced for television in reality shows such as “24 Hours,” “Hard Evidence,” “ID,” “Extreme Forensics,” and “Cold Case Files,” depict how justice is served by detectives and forensic personnel who apply a combination of persistence, intellect, and science. These programs typically take a “whodunit” approach to maintain audience interest throughout, revealing the potential guilty party in the last reel, along with final court room disposition and, if applicable, sentencing. believes more programming should focus on the extraordinary contributions made by highly trained medical specialists responsible for saving many individuals who would certainly die or suffer extreme incapacities without their skilled intervention.

Just as those who attempt to bring justice to society and the family and friends of victims from criminal acts, physicians fight disease and infirmities that afflict their patients and, in turn, impact the pain borne by their loved ones. Similar to their crime fighter counterparts, and despite miraculous advances in medical technology and their own superior skill levels, surgeons who perform the most risky operations cannot always deliver a positive result.

Through its documentary series,, together with its production affiliate, Impression Masters (, will chronicle the journey from early patient contact, diagnosis, plan of treatment, surgery and, if applicable, patient follow up. It will then discuss whether the desired outcome was fully, partially or not realized. In the event of a less than successful outcome, an examination of the reasons will follow.

Interviews with the primary surgeon during the process, the patient, and others involved with the procedure, will take place as the story line unfolds. The risks and potential pitfalls of the surgical procedure will be fully examined, including the risk of doing nothing.

The program will also take a personal interest in the physicians, including the reasons why they became specialists in the more risky and demanding medical fields, their hobbies and lifestyles, as well as their views on the current state of health care and where they believe it should be heading.

In addition to demonstrating the skills of our most talented and highly trained surgeons and the extraordinary facilities and diagnostic and procedural tools at their disposal, the drama of the final outcome at the end of the program should provide at least as much interest as the “whodunits” in the very successful crime reality shows. It will also show how the best and brightest among us fight that other purveyor of victimhood . . . disease.

The first episode will feature the head of Neurosurgery at Tampa General Hospital, Dr. Harry Van Loveren.
