Storyline

An array of challenging pediatric cases run through this episode. Frightened that brain surgery could damage their child, Thomas McGowen's parents finally let surgeons operate to try to remove a tumor that is making their son blind. Emre Babli is another little boy who had a tumor removed as baby. The operation left him disfigured. Tough-talking plastic surgeon Anthony Tufaro thinks he can make Emre as good as new. But nothing will make Mya Thomas like she was. This little girl was nearly drowned when pulled from a pool. With her brain function minimal, doctors try to persuade her parents to disconnect life support. Sneha Desai, Herman Bagga and Gina Westhoff introduce viewers to the world of third year medical students where "the gross stuff is cool, delivering a baby is a career-decider, and wearing a turban is an icebreaker with patients."
