This is a six part documentary series looking at the work of 'bionic vet' Noel Fitzpatrick.

At his multi million pound state of the art centre in Surrey, Noel is pioneering revolutionary new surgical techniques to save and improve the lives of thousands of pets from all over the country.

He is a medical engineer, rebuilding animals using a whole range of metal structures, nuts, bolts, implants and groundbreaking procedures. 

For many of the animals referred to him, he's their last hope.

In the coming weeks we'll be seeing family pets being given new legs, total knee replacements and undergoing a whole range of reconstructive surgery. Many will have their lives transformed by a mind boggling array of bionic implants.

In a world first, Noel will give Oscar, a cat, two new feet and attempt to rebuild the shattered pelvis of Lottie, another cat, who was struck by a car.  It's an emotional roller coaster for the owners and a real challenge in terms of bravery and perseverance.

Whether accident victims or suffering from genetic abnormalities, Noel Fitzpatrick and his veterinary team are driven by a shared goal, to improve and extend the lives of their patients using some of the most cutting edge and sophisticated technology available.
