Abstract:

In this program, presenter Michael J. Mosley illustrates how surgery has transformed, over time, from grisly butchery into an astounding lifesaving science. This is a tale of the contributions of exceptional people who, between them, overcame the four barriers that would finally allow surgeons to start saving lives -- rather than gruesomely ending them: human anatomy, as addressed by Andreas Vesalius; blood loss, as addressed by Ambroise Paré; anesthesia, as addressed by John Snow; and infection, as addressed by Ignaz Semmelweis. Sometimes reckless, sometimes heroic, surgical visionaries took huge risks to reap rewards for all of humankind. Contains surgical scenes of a graphic nature.
