This episode introduces us to the world of transplants, from the doctors of yesteryear and their dubious attempt at transplants (including grafting chimpanzee testicles onto in a quest for virility) to those of our future, who will render the notion of rejection obsolete… In the operating room, we witness a life-changing kidney transplant for one patient. This episode also examines plastic surgery, exploring prosthetics glued with plant sap, facial reconstructions for war injuries, and the story of a very particular Italian graft. In the operating room, we witness surgery restoring the function of the membranes that protect eyeballs.
