From Handsaw to Scalpel is a fascinating insight into the evolution of modern medicine as we explore the medical treatments for certain issues from past to present, seeing just how much we have learned through trial and error. The series is also a chance to see how medical advancements are currently used to treat problems in the fields of oncology, ophthalmology, dentistry, neurology, obstetrics and orthopaedics, and to see what the future may hold.
