Lobotomy: How Science Went off the Rails !

Viewer Discretion is advised! This short clip is a trailer for the PBS Documentary about Dr. Walter Freeman's work performing "ice-pick" lobotomies (a form of psychosurgery); his attempt to solve the problems of psychiatry in the 1940s & 50s.

One of the most horrifying medical treatments in the history of medicine was approved by the medical establishment, the media, and the public!

You can watch the full documentary here:
