    Anyone watch this show?

    It was formerly on Discovery Health, and I saw that it's now coming to OWN.

    I highly recommend it. It's one show I will still watch even though it makes me cry every time. It's about Dr. Andrew Jacono, and his devotion to providing pro bono plastic surgery to trauma and accident victims.

    I'm amazed at how moved he seems by every case. He really is doing a wonderful thing.

    It CAN be a bit graphic at times, as surgery shows often are. But it's worth it.

    I saw the case of the sister left for dead in Virginia and the little girl who had a bad eye because her mom was beaten when she was pregnant with her. He did a great job in both cases.

    Yeah. I was amazed what he could do. He's a very talented surgeon.

    Thanks for the heads up on this. I have never seen it advertised & I love those kinds of shows.
    I wonder why it is shown and you have to setup the shows individually instead of being able to setup a season's pass?

    I don't know. I think you'll love it, though.
