7 x 45'

Surgeons uncovers the powerful human stories at the cutting edge of medicine, looking at both the practitioners and the patients that go under their knives.

This remarkable series offers up-close insights into real life and death situations, going into the operating theatre itself to show the pioneering and high-risk work carried out by Ireland's leading surgeons. It also looks at the daily working lives of these commanding, wilful, highly paid, yet formidably talented people. The brain, the heart, and transplants are just some of the issues focused on in this fly-on-the wall documentary series.
