About The Show

Witness a modern-day medical marvel with an inside look at the body’s most amazing, most complex machine: the brain. Brain Surgery Live takes viewers into an operating room during an awake craniotomy, a procedure in which a portion of the skull is removed and the brain is operated on while the patient is fully awake and able to speak with the surgeons. There has never been a television show like this – offering a live view into the centre of a living brain.
