Surgeons: At the Edge of Life

Surgeons is a rare opportunity to get the inside track on what really happens when you’re under anaesthetic

Watching someone having their face cut open is not for everyone, but for those who can stomach it, Surgeons is a rare opportunity to get the inside track on what really happens when you’re under anaesthetic.

This hard-hitting documentary series follows medics from Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham as they perform a series of groundbreaking surgeries.

We get to meet Teresa Dallas who needs a nine-hour op to remove a tumour on her face.

‘With cancer I was facing a death sentence and although there was a risk I might not survive the op I had to take that chance’, she says. Not for the squeamish!
