I'll take minimally invasive surgery for $1,200, Alex

The doctors donít know the questions. Even the category is a secret.

But anesthesiologist Dr. David Feinstein and surgeon Dr. Jonathan Critchlow do know the answers that Jeopardyís Tournament of Champions contestants will be puzzling over tonight.

Back in June, the gowned and masked Beth Israel Deaconess doctors demonstrated some procedures for the game showís traveling Clue Crew in the hospitalís Carl J. Shapiro Simulation and Skills Center. The idea was to gather on film some medical clues for questions on surgery.

The mystery will be solved, in the form of a question, at 7:30 p.m. on WSBK-TV 38.
