AIR DATE: June 14, 2011

Jay Coates has seen some pretty amazing things at his job: a man with a giant metal pipe jammed in his neck.  Another man mauled by a tiger.  A boy speared on his bike handlebars.  That's because Dr. Jay Coates is a trauma surgeon at the UMC Trauma Center.  So what does it take to be a trauma surgeon?  What's it like when you're faced with saving people on the brink of death?  Dr. Coates joins us to share some of his harrowing stories.
