Epilepsy surgery on TV

BBC One is showing a television programme on Wednesday 27th July at 9pm on the work of neurosurgen Chris Chandler, as he completes an operation to prevent life threatening seizure in a 19 year-old woman.

19-year-old Sarah has epilepsy and suffers over 20 fits a day. Harry is seven, and his fits are so severe they can stop him breathing. Surgery is their only hope of a normal life, but the risks are high.

Brain surgeon Chris Chandler, who works at King’s College Hospital in London, is one of only a handful of surgeons able to perform this complex surgery. Their lives are in his hands.

UPDATE: BBC News has a story about the programme online.

    The Hackers have done such a diservice. The search Engines are listing the epilepsy life saving surgerys under the search wors “Hackers” and the blog lists the work of the Surgens under mind Hacks.
    Itis important the the work of Hackers be stopped before everything gets blamed for Hackers. Already people are blamming the RIAA for wiping the MP3 files off their hard disk when they try to download music off P2P files. They say the virus is the work of Hackers. I’ve seen atleast one blog that blames the RIAA for this kind of Hacking. This is displayed predominently on the results of the search word Hacking Blogs.
    The need to stop the Hacking is discussed at

    and the need to develop a new kind of internet sedrvice that will put Hackers out of business is described at
