Celebrating 20 Years of Health Radio with Dr. Shives

July 16, 2011

After this morning's program on hand and wrist problems, a group gathered at Victoria's Ristorante in Rochester for a surprise party recognizing and celebrating the 20th anniversary of the beginning of Medical Edge Weekend co-host Dr. Tom Shives' radio career.

During the week, Dr. Shives is a top orthopedic surgeon, but in June 1991 he began hosting a Saturday morning radio call-in show on KROC-AM in Rochester. The program was originally called Healthline. More than 900 episodes later, we recognized Dr. Shives' commitment to serving through the radio program that has become Mayo Clinic Medical Edge Weekend:
