After nearly two years of production, "NY MED" is back. This fast-paced, eight-part series mostly toggles between the orderly operating rooms of Manhattan's New York-Presbyterian Hospital -- the primary venue for the series -- where renowned surgeons perform feats of medical brilliance, and the sometimes hectic trauma wards of Newark's University Hospital where skilled doctors gallantly struggle to treat a flood of gunshot, stabbing and life-threatening trauma cases. The surgeons of NY Med never forget that there are limits to what medical science can do and that sometimes their best efforts come up short. In "Episode 201," which airs THURSDAY, JUNE 26 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), viewers will encounter the following patients, doctors and nurses:
Most people know America's most famous doctor as "Dr. Oz," but Mehmet Oz was a cardiac surgeon long before TV discovered him, and he still is, performing surgeries most weeks of the year. In this premiere episode, surgeon Oz stops to chat with 27-year old Juan Vasquez who has come to the ER with discomfort in his chest. In a blood-chilling instant, Juan convulses in agony and the look in Oz's eyes is unmistakable. This is a life-threatening crisis. Oz believes the man's aorta has ripped from his chest down to the main artery in his leg. Every second counts and Oz knows he must make perfect decisions in exactly the right order if this young man's life can be saved.
Marina, Diana and Katie--the ER's compassionate, competent and sometimes hilarious nurses from the first season of NY MED--return. They confront everything from subway tragedies to romantic suitors feigning medical syndromes. In this first episode, they treat a young woman with a bizarre injury that leaves the staff both baffled and impressed.
Don't miss the "NY MED" premiere, THURSDAY, JUNE 26 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
