New series. Cameras follow surgeons, anaesthetists, theatre staff and patients at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham's surgical unit, where 700 operations are carried out every week. In the first edition, maxillofacial surgeons Tim Martin and Sat Parmar prepare for a marathon operation on 53-year-old Teresa, who was diagnosed with a fast-growing cancerous tumour in her face a month previously. The procedure involves radical surgery to the entire right-hand side of her face, and means she will lose both her upper jaw and right eye.
