What does the Hippocratic Oath actually say? Who originally discovered antibiotics? And is it true that technology now allows reconstructive surgery to use customized 3-D printed body parts? You'll find answers to these and many other questions in this intriguing tour of the world of illness and those who treat it, from the first "medicines" found in the natural world to today's keyhole surgery, bionic limbs, and breakthrough drug treatments.
