Discovery Radio- Episode #33 – Landmark Discovery: Esophageal Regeneration

A team of doctors need to fix a critically ill patient’s badly damaged esophagus, only to find that it’s beyond repair by standard practice. What they did instead, you’ll have to hear to believe!

On today’s show, we’ll get the story straight from the doctor in our community who lead an extraordinary team effort in successfully re-growing an esophagus inside the patient.  And later, we’ll learn how this could lead to future breakthroughs in patient care.

It’s an amazing story of a landmark organ regeneration done out of life-saving necessity, inside this edition of CTSI Discovery Radio.
