Forgot the name of a surgery TV show.

I'm looking for the name of a TV show that showed one surgery per episode. It came on in the late 90's. It was on Discovery, TLC, or a similar channel. The show was an hour long. I remember there being shows about knee replacement, breast reduction, and something laparoscopic. I thought it was called "The Surgery".

Best answer: Most likely, The Operation.

Are you referring to "The Operation"? It looks like it ran from 1993 - 2001. I remember watching it.

Oh jeeze yes. It was very graphic and the thing that put the Discovery channel on the map.

Definitely has to be The Operation. Boy, my friends thought I was a weirdo for liking that.

Response by poster: Yes! The Operation sounds right. Any ideas where I can find The Operation on DVD, VHS, BitTorrent, etc?

Response by poster: I found the show for sale at absurd prices. Any ideas where I can get this without paying $2500? Maybe I can borrow it from a library?

I have 5 episodes of The Operation on VHS. I can fairly easily convert them to DVD. If you want copies, check your MeFi mail. The ones I have are: knee replacement, jaw, breast, mitral valve replacement, parathyroid.
