Focus onHealth Looks at Solving Medical Mysteries

GREAT NECK, NY--(Marketwired - December 03, 2015) - When we think of mysteries, it might conjure images of Sherlock Holmes and magnifying glasses, but medical mysteries are quite different. Solving them involves a vast team of health care practitioners, researchers and experts in diagnostic imaging.

This week's Focus onHealth TV episode, which will air on Saturday, December 5, at 10:30 a.m. on WLNY, takes a look at mysterious cases involving some very special patients, whose lives were saved by Peter Constantino, MD, executive director of the New York Head & Neck Institute in Manhattan; John Boockvar, MD, director of the brain tumor center and pituitary/neuroendocrine center at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan; David Meyer, MD, attending cardiothoracic surgeon at Cohen Children's Medical Center in New Hyde Park; and Mitchell Maiman, MD, chairman of obstetrics and gynecology at Staten Island University Hospital.
