Summary: From executive producer Peter Ocko comes a new medical drama about two elite neurosurgeons who have different takes on how to treat their patients. One cares about them and one who only cares about their brains. Dr. Doug Hanson (Stanley Tucci) is a brilliant neurosurgeon and one of the best in New York City. His method is simple. The brain is like a wire box, and the patient is not important because that is just the outside. Dr. Jonathan Seger (Mark Feuerstein) has a totally different point-of-view. To him, the psychological health of his patient is a priority. When these two top doctors work on a patient, however, they forget their differences and perform miracles.
