NY Med Recap: Friday Night in Brooklyn

July 24, 2012 08:39 PM by Shayla Perry

Three gunshot wounds, a taxi-cab accident, bar fights…. Yup, it’s just another Friday night in Brooklyn, and it was all caught on tape for ABC‘s latest reality hit, NY Med. Plus, Dr. Oz returns as both a doctor and a patient. What else did you miss in tonight’s all new episode?

This week on NY Med….

John Rankl is a Gulf War veteran in need of a new heart. The problem? He’s also HIV+, and there are few doctors willing to perform the transplant on someone who they think is “going to die anyway.”

Luckily, the doctors on NY Med don’t feel that way.

They find a good donor for him, and with his entire family, John rushes to the hospital – a mere 2 hours away – to prep for surgery.

When the donor heart arrives, everything looks good, and John is already put under anesthesia in the OR. Unfortunately, they later find that the heart has been “accidentally damaged,” meaning no surgery for John.

His family is obviously upset, but they don’t give up.

Later, John transfers to Hartford Hospital in Connecticut, which is closer to where he lives. And even better — they have a heart for him and are willing to do the transplant, despite his HIV status.

Following his transplant, John’s doctors are all amazed at how well he’s recovered, and he is staying very active volunteering in his community.

Dr. Mehmet Oz

After raiding the nurses’ lounge to see how well (or not well) they’re eating, Dr. Oz continues to practice what he preaches, going in for a routine colonoscopy.

Even while sedated, he’s still teaching, but is surprised to find that he does have a very small polyp, which his doctor is able to remove.

And what does Dr. Oz want to do with that poly? Send it to Oprah!

    Great show NY Med. Didn’t get to see the first two episodes but did last night. Working in the medical profession that female doctor needed to do something with her hair. Running your hands thru it was rediculous. Put it in a bun or poney tail or put a cap over it while working or something and keep it out of the way for goodness sakes. You didn’t see anyone else having to put their hair out of the way during the show.

    You can catch the first two episodes on the NY Med website (nymedshow.com). They were much better than this one, which was ruined by the female doctor you mentioned. She seemed to be all about herself and her appearance. I’m obviously not in the medical profession, but seeing her mess with her hair the entire time drove me crazy too!
