In Pursuit of Self-Improvement: Akimasa Nakao, Pancreatic Surgeon *RERUN
Surgeon Akimasa Nakao (73) battles pancreatic cancer, the hardest cancer to treat. He takes on surgeries deemed impossible, yet his mortality rate is one-twentieth of the national average. The key lies in the revolutionary technique he developed himself. Why does he continue to wield a scalpel well into his 70s? Pancreatic cancer is a silent killer, with 70% of patients told surgery is impossible. As the last stand against it, Nakao is determined to save every life he can.
