Dr. Ted Holyoke was a family practice doctor in Omaha for 32 years. He even watched part of what is now The Nebraska Medical Center being built when he was younger. But he never imagined after taking care of so many patients for so many years that he would eventually be a patient himself. Holyoke sought treatment for a gastrointestinal stromal tumor at The Nebraska Medical Center. It's a kind of cancer that would've eventually taken his life, but thanks to treatment from oncologists Dr. Jean Grem and Dr. Aaron Sasson, Holyoke's cancer disappeared. After surgery, no radiation or chemo was needed - just a daily pill. In this video, Dr. Holyoke explains why he chose The Nebraska Medical Center for treatment and why he suggests others do the same.
