DOCTORS: The Ultimate Surgeon

DOCTORS: The Ultimate Surgeon| tv asahi
©tv asahi
T his drama is about a doctor who tries to rebuild a spoiled hospital on his own to save the patients.
After being employed for 12 years at a university hospital, surgeon Kosuke Sagara accepts a job at Dougami General Hospital.
To his surprise, he finds that the doctors there are more concerned about themselves than their patients. Sagara believes that being an honest person comes before being a doctor. And so when he sees doctors driving around in expensive cars and caring more about their stocks and their careers rather than their patients, he decides to do whatever he can to cut away the cancer that infects the hospital.
Sometimes clever, other times callous, Sagara uses all kinds of methods in an attempt to reform the hospital.
