1/3 - Chris Chandler: Neurosurgeon

Every day, neurosurgeon Chris Chandler operates on people whose epilepsy is dominating their life, knowing that his actions could stop their seizures but could also result in what he calls "a deficit". A deficit is a loss of speech, damage to sight or the inability to use a limb. "You can go from hero to zero, just like that," Chandler says grimly. "You are, after all, responsible for someone's essence." This new series of documentaries charting the work of various top surgeons follows several of Chandler's cases, including 19-year-old Sarah who currently has up to 22 seizures a day, and seven-year-old Harry whose attacks are so severe they sometimes stop his breathing.
