Sen. Ted Kennedy Out of Brain Surgery

Kennedy's Brain Surgery 'Successful,' Says Duke University Doctor

Kennedy's Brain Surgery continued...

Flamm: The people who met up at the MGH [Massachusetts General Hospital] were from the MGH, Duke, and UCSF [University of California at San Francisco]. They have big tumor programs at these places, as do other places. But I don't know what prompted that particular decision. ... There's nothing that one of these large university medical centers has that the others aren't aware of. It may be that he thought he'd get more privacy outside of Boston. I don't know. You can speculate on any reason. Maybe he liked Allan Friedman. He's a nice guy. But so are the people at the MGH.

Anything else you would want to add?

Heros: Now we need to wait and hear from Duke how the surgery went and look forward to Sen. Kennedy's recovery.

Flamm: I just wish him well. It's a devastating diagnosis.
