78 ratings | 50257 views
WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT In this video depicting an actual surgery, Dr. Maen Farha, medical director of the MedStar Union Memorial Hospital breast center in Baltimore, will remove a cancerous tumor and surrounding tissue from a patient's breast. Intraoperative radiation therapy, or IORT, is then used during the surgery to treat the tissue that surrounded the tumor with a high dose of radiation. IORT may reduce the risk of cancer returning to where it was removed. Learn more about Dr. Maen Farha at http://www.medstarhealth.org/doctor/dr-maen-jamel-farha-md-facs. For media interviews with Dr Farha, call Debra Schindler, regional director of media & public relations for MedStar Health: 410-274-1260.

Thank God for your wisdom and talent. I am so concerned for my girlfriend though. This is so much more involved than I was led to believe.
