Bits from “Bullets and Brains”: The Challenge of Healing After a Headshot
RestartResume
A bullet to the brain is a condition that’s not easy to bounce back from, as this case of an almost-fatal shooting of a former congresswoman shows.
  • Overview

    Even with quick thinking and timely action, the chances of a neurosurgeon being able to do more than taking out the bullet, administering antibiotics, and stopping the bleeding isn’t likely, and surviving a bullet to the brain can unfortunately be just the beginning of a patient’s struggles. Focusing on the title story of his book Bullets and Brains, Dr. Andrew Wilner discusses the serious aftermath congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords experienced while recovering from a headshot.
