The English Surgeon
16 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The English Surgeon confronts an issue that we rarely care to talk about, and that we simply refuse to recognized. This documentary displays the compassion of Dr. Henry Marsh, an English neurosurgeon, to give to those who are less fortunate in the only way he knows how. Dr. Marsh travels to Ukraine with nothing more than a used medical supplies and the heart of lion. His true test comes when he has to make the judgment call when patients' lives are on the line. Geoffrey Smith delivers a film long overdue for the uneducated masses that either refuse to believe the failure of health care systems in developing countries, or those who refuse to recognize the magnitude of the issue. The humanity of the film ignites the soul and inspires greatness.
