Local man on '20/20'

Thursday, August 16, 2001

A "20/20" story originally scheduled to air last month may finally be broadcast tomorrow night at 10 on WTAE-TV.

The report is about Ed Cwalin-ski, a 19-year-old from Gibsonia who underwent surgery to treat a disease in which muscles contract into a tug-of-war that prohibits fluid, relaxed motion. After standard treatments proved ineffective, doctors placed deep stimulators into the young man's brain in two surgeries last year. He is now doing well.

His transformation was documented in a Post-Gazette story that appeared in April.
