Julian Bailes, MD, is the chairman of the department of neurosurgery and co-director of NorthShore University HealthSystem’s Neurological Institute. He is also the man behind the Dr. Bailes character played by Alec Baldwin in ‘Concussion’. A recent study of 111 brains found that 110 of them had CTE. Dr. Bailes joins Bill and Wendy to discuss these shocking results.
