The English Surgeon
ABC2  |  June 17, 2012

Henry Marsh is one of London's leading brain surgeons, but in a second-life he devotes himself to the tragically under-resourced medical service in the Ukraine, assisting the practice of his close friend Dr Igor Kurilets. Together they achieve minor miracles using improvised surgical equipment such as consumer-standard rechargeable drills to operate on brain tumours. This extremely moving, award-winning documentary follows the two doctors as they work to overcome the setbacks and provide their patients with a second-chance at life. Broadcast as part of ABC's Sunday Best.
