Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s Prescription For Fighting Off Dementia

When he’s not on CNN giving updates on the coronavirus, Sanjay Gupta is at his day job, as a neurosurgeon. “I’ve had a longstanding love affair with the brain,” he said.

“You’re a brain surgeon — what’s it like to hold it in your hands?” asked CBS News chief medical correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook.

“First time I ever operated on the brain, you know, close to 30 years ago now, it was a mystical experience,” Dr. Gupta replied. “You can’t believe that those three-and-a-half pounds are everything to us — all of our pain, all of our joy, all of our memories, all of our learning, everything.”
