For many people, hospitals, doctors, and especially surgery can be scary and intimidating. Not all of the doctors featured in The Surgeon's Cut may be outwardly friendly, but the show cuts deep to find out what drives them, how they go about their work, and the lengths to which they go to insure their patients' well-being. The doctors care for their patients in ways that aren't always obvious, and they often reveal their own struggles with illness and loss. Rather than simply documenting the clinical side of surgery, The Surgeon's Cut takes the time to look at the human side of medicine. It's a show that can help illuminate some of the mystery of the operating room.
