Dr. Ben Margolis, director of Autopsy Center of Chicago, shares his experience and insights into the autopsy procedure, the patients who get them and families who ask for them. Learn how an autopsy is performed; understand how the information gained brings a family to a place of peace; and hear a story or two along the way that might surprise or move you.
