Episode 1 focuses on the stories of three women who suffer from blocked blood vessels deep inside their bodies.  On the eve of becoming a US citizen, a hard-working Mexican immigrant struggles to walk and longs to dance again.  A beautiful newlywed dreams of starting a family, but her condition makes it too dangerous.  A mother's life hangs in the balance as she struggles simply to breathe.  Without A Scalpel explores their stories and relationships, their triumphs and challenges, and their hopes for the future.

They perform critical repairs through pinholes in the body, allowing their patients to return to their lives with simply a Band-Aid®.


Episode 2: The Cancer Snipers is the story of two heroic patients with cancer (liver and neuroendocrine) and the specially trained doctors who treat their disease through a pinhole in the skin. Each patient is determined to maintain his quality of life during his remarkable journey.
