The Bone Marrow Biopsy

Hello all – Sorry for the delay! It’s been a hectic eight months while filming Diagnosis: The Series and tonight we launched the first episode of Season 2 on our Youtube channel!

There is a lot packed into this 12-minute video. Including a Q&A portion where I answer several of Google’s most searched questions regarding Bone Marrow Biopsies.
