Diagnosis Unknown

Part science, part mystery and entirely human, Diagnosis Unknown is about people and risks… triumphs and failure. This is a world ruled by time and consequence. Every decision matters… and every second counts. Diagnosis Unknown is about the extraordinary stories of doctors, patients and the fight to survive.

Featuring the best doctors and scientists in the world; from cardiac surgeons on the front lines of heart surgery, to epidemiologists struggling to root out the cause of a deadly epidemic, you’ll see the world of medicine as you’ve never seen it before.

Who are these people, who each day balance selflessness and power, detachment and humanity, brilliance and fallibility? Who are their patients, who come to them vulnerable, bleeding and broken? What does it take to make things right… and what are the repercussions of those critical decisions?

Featuring the best doctors and scientists in the world, from cardiac surgeons on the front lines of heart surgery, to epidemiologists struggling to root out the cause of a deadly epidemic, you’ll see the world of medicine as you’ve never seen it before.
Discover how strange and rare diseases are identified on the brink of global outbreak. Experience the tension of crucial, but experimental surgery. See state-of-the-art procedures that are changing lives forever.

Is there a cure for every disease? Do we know all the diseases that exist? Diagnosis Unknown puts these questions into practice.
