Is there a doctor in the house, on the plane, in the restaurant . . . 911! "Medicine Men" have been healing Texans since the buffalo roamed wild across the prairies. And now these amazing healers are called doctors and they practice in your neighborhood hospitals, clinics and private practices. Medicine Men: Heartwarming Tales of Texas Doctors showcases the miracles, innovations and wisdom of the healers of the 21st century.

You will experience joy and sorrow as you turn the pages of Medicine Men, discovering personal heartwarming tales of real cases told by the doctors in their own words. The tale of Egyptian conjoined twins born attached at the skull, Ahmed and Mohamed Ibrahim, is told by Dr. Kenneth Salyer, the internationally recognized leader and pioneer in craniofacial surgery. Walk with Dr. Steven White as he takes us from start to finish through his plastic surgery office showcasing the way a vision is transformed by surgical skill into a beautiful reality that changes lives. Dr. Fiona Wright shows us how feeling good about ourselves is a right, not a privilege, through her touching story of a patient whom she operated on following an accident.

Docs reveal their own grandmothers’ favorite healing RX which may be the same remedy you use yourself today, perhaps it’s the all time favorite—chicken soup for a cold or Epson Salt to soothe your sore throat.

The Lone Star state has bragging rights to world class healthcare touting Nobel Laureates, award winning doctors and healthcare facilities. Scott & White Hospital was founded in 1897 in Temple, TX, and has led the technological revolution in Texas medicine ever since. Scott & White has received national recognition for its clinical trials focusing on improving patient care and its cancer, orthopedics and cardiovascular care programs and internationally recognized doctors. With Dr. Arthur Frankel at the helm, Scott & White's New Cancer Research Institute is paving the way for new methods of treatment for cancer patients across the country.

Can you believe our forefathers were the originators of the current miracle drug penicillin? Texas was originally occupied by the Cherokee, Caddo, Coahuiltecan, Comanche and other Indian tribes. Each tribe had a Medicine Man, who was sometimes a "wo"man and was a respected leader of the tribe. They practiced medicine utilizing natural herbs, minerals, animals and the gods. For example, a mixture of cornmeal, fungus and herbs was used as an elixir to cure boils and tumors, which was the first Native American discovery of antibiotics.

Meet the brave warriors of modern medicine in the Lone Star state in Medicine Men: Heartwarming Tales of Texas Docs— their tales of miracles and words of inspiration is medicine for the soul.
