RTE’s ‘Surgeons’ Enters Dublin Hospitals
:
Three-part documentary series ‘Surgeons’ kicked off last Thursday 22nd May on RTE One.

The observational series, produced by Mint Productions, follows six of Ireland’s top surgeons as they carry out their lifesaving work at some of Ireland’s busiest hospitals – St Vincent’s, the Mater, Beaumont and Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital.

The documentary, directed by Traolach O’Buachalla, filmed from October 2007 – March 2008, and follows the emotional highs and lows of eight patients as they undergo lifesaving treatment, including an epilepsy sufferer about to have cutting-edge neurosurgery and young girl who undergoes limb lengthening surgery at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin.

“The series gives a real insight into the work of Ireland’s top surgeons,” series producer Alida Stewart told IFTN. “Our camera crew even followed the surgeons into the operating theatre. One patient we followed was awaiting a donor for a liver transplant that would save his life, and we were there when he got the crucial telephone call to saw they had found a donor.”

’Surgeons’ also highlights many issues facing the health service today - waiting lists, public versus private practice, centers of excellence, hospital politics.

The series is executive produced by Steve Carson, and Miriam O’Callaghan, with editing by Guy Montgomery at Egg post-production.

’Surgeons’ airs on Thursday 22nd and 29th May, and 5th June at 10.15 pm on RTE One.
